Lošinj is a picturesque, extremely green island, located in the northern part of Croatia, in the Kvarner archipelago. Its largest city is Mali Lošinj, which tourists like to visit because of its warm climate, lush nature and the vicinity of crystal clear sea. This city was awarded the Silver Flower of Europe statuette for order on the streets and beaches. It is worth relaxing in Mali Lošinj and getting to know the whole island.

Lošinj has a very diverse coastline. Pebble or rocky beaches are hidden in picturesque coves or are surrounded by trees. The Adriatic Sea has a beautiful turquoise-emerald color. In the sea, you can often see dolphins , which are the symbol of the island. In addition, part of Lošinj is covered with mountainous areas.

Rest in a picturesque bay

It is difficult to rest and relax in even the most beautiful place, if there is no adequate tourist infrastructure there. Fortunately, there is no problem with that on the island of Lošinj. Near the town of Mali Lošinj there is a comfortable and appreciated by guests Camping Village Poljana . The resort is surrounded by the sea. On one side of the campsite there is a very picturesque bay, on the other - a small tourist harbor - Marina, where you can rent a boat.


In the campground you will find many attractions , with a wonderful sandy beach at the forefront. There is a group of animators in the center that organizes activities, games and activities for adults and children. The little ones can spend time in the Mini Club or use the local playground. The vicinity of the sea makes it a perfect place for water sports enthusiasts. There you can go windsurfing , canoeing or pedal boats.

Lunch overlooking the sea

While relaxing in Camping Village Poljana, we have the opportunity to taste the delicacies of Croatia . In addition, we can do it while sitting on the terrace of the local restaurant and admire the nearby sea at the same time. The chefs serve freshly caught fish and grill them. It is also worth tasting local dishes. A real feast for the palate is Ćevapčići - these are oblong-shaped grilled pieces of mutton meat, similar to sausages, served with onions, sauce and bread. It is also worth trying burek , a cake stuffed with meat or cheese.


In the restaurant of Camping Village Poljana we will also try the most famous Croatian alcohol - Rakija . It is made of fruit or herbs and distillates. Croatia is also known for its fine wines and liqueurs . Various drinks, coffee and rosata (chocolates stuffed with almond-nut mass) and cream made of eggs, milk, liqueur and caramel sauce can be ordered at the bar, which also operates on the premises of the resort.


After a hearty and tasty tour, it is worth going for a short nap. Camping Village Poljana offers its guests holiday homes of various sizes. In each of them there is a well-equipped kitchenette connected to the living room, as well as a comfortable bedroom. Additionally, the cabins have air conditioning , a bathroom with a shower and a covered patio. There are also plots with sanitary and electricity connections, where we can park a motorhome.

We are visiting Mali Lošinj

Mali Lošinj is the largest town on the island and it must be admitted that it is unique in every way. The town is distinguished by baroque and classicist houses, and at the same time is surrounded by lush vegetation. Its most famous monuments include the villas of the Austrian aristocracy and churches (including the church of St. Martin from 1450, the church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, built in 1858, or the church of St. Nicholas, which was built in 1857). In addition, it is worth seeing in Mali Lošinj an unusual fountain with two dolphins and the Stations of the Cross. The medicinal herbs garden and the Čikat Park are unique.


In the summer season, many cultural and entertainment events are organized in the town, incl. "Fishing Games" that take place in the nearby bay.

Italy, Croatia, Spain ... are the countries I would like to come back to every summer. I like to discover new places, whether it is a bustling capital city or a quiet town on a mountain slope.
