Economic and administrative heart of the island of Lošinj, Mali Lošinj is a beautiful town that mainly winds around its port. In fact, maritime activities have always been the main source of income for the inhabitants, so much so that even the banner of the municipality celebrates the occasion with a sailing ship in the center of the coat of arms.
Alongside the shipbuilding industry, which is still active, over the years also boating and passenger traffic have become significant voices in the local economy. The improvement of services and maritime transport has accompanied the development of tourism of the territory without, however, causing a distortion of the places, according to a parable that is instead quite recurrent in other tourist destinations.
To realize this, just enter the maze of alleys, squares and stairways that draw the historic center. Not only urban planning, architecture too has maintained its historicity. In fact, as in the best Mediterranean tradition, almost all the houses of Mali Lošinj have gardens and citrus groves inside, while churches and palaces show their baroque and neoclassical imprint.
In short, a charming seaside resort, organized, welcoming, and moreover able to maintain its characteristic aplomb even in periods of maximum tourist turnout. To be seen!
