Lošinj sails around the world festival
The idea to create this kind of festival originated from a desire for preservation and revitalization of the maritime tradition, through the revival and presentation of the historical and cultural heritage of Lošinj that experienced its golden age from 1853 to 1884.
This segment of Lošinj history was chosen for promotion because of its devoted and capable Lošinj sailors, shipbuilders and shipowners who made this island the center of the maritime affairs of the eastern Mediterranean of the 19th century.
During this Festival, you will get an insight into the rich maritime heritage of Lošinj, treat yourself to a delightful culinary experience by tasting the „dishes of Lošinj captains“ at local restaurants, and get the opportunity to take part in numerous creative workshops.
