Discover island of vitality and the town of Mali Lošinj
With SightRun App you can now discover the beautiful town of Mali Lošinj while running. Islad Lošinj is claimed to be one of the healthiest destination in Croatia, so this run is not just for exploration but for boosting your health.
Mali Lošinj dates back to the 12th century. It eventually developed as a port town. In the late 19th century it was recognized as a destination suitable for the treatment of respiratory diseases and turned to tourism due to a specific climate. The island started to transform into a trendy Austro-Hungarian winter health resort and turned to tourism. Combine history and nature, discover trails, make a day trip to islands Ilovik, Susak and Unije, try to catch dolphins. Put on your bucket list a visit to a museum dedicated to the 2,000 year-old bronze statue of Apoxymenos.
