On the eastern side of the island lies the village of Veli Losinj, which was once larger than Mali Losinj, even the name suggests this, as Veli means big in croatian. Today this is a small village with about 1500 inhabitants.
Interesting tourist attractions are the St. Anthony the Hermit church with its bell tower from 1774 and the most valuable sacral collection of the Kvarner Islands, the roman church St. Nicholas and the watch tower of the 16th century.
Veli Losinj is also known as having a climate beneficial to your health, where allergies, skin problems and lung diseases can be healed or cured.
During your walk through the narrow alleys of Losinj you will be mesmerized by the mediterranean flora, the magnolias and palms.
