Museum of Apoxyomenos

A true archaeological sensation

The sea of Lošinj has been keeping a big secret for over 2000 years. A tourist accidental dive in 1996 triggered a series of events which led to the most beautiful discovery of the Adriatic underwater world. Asleep since classical antiquity, a priceless bronze statue of a young Greek athlete was awoken.
Discovery, recovery, restoration and a new life of the handsome statue have become an intriguing story in the new history of Croatian culture with elements of drama, thriller and a spectacle.
The Museum of Apoxyomenos is a unique archaeological, architectural and cultural institution and it is entirely dedicated to only one exhibit – the Apoxyomenos!
