Nerezine, a small green oasis.

✭ Nerezine is a small settlement of about 400 inhabitants, but it nevertheless boasts an "urban" structure with shops, cafés, a kiosk, a supermarket, a post office and even two hairdressers. The most important economic factor is a small shipyard specializing in the wooden shipbuilding.

Farmers and fishermen have left their imprint on the village. The loose structure on the slopes of the mountain Televrin, with small fields, olive trees and numerous gardens, gives the impression of a green oasis.

Starting from Nerezine there are near,  yet completely different destinations that are worth a small trip. Whether Roman, Venetian, or Austrian - the cultural past of the islands is still visible and has shaped the area around Nerezine.

Hike to Osor

Osor, about 4 km away, is easily reached by green paths. The old Roman port links the two islands of Cres in the north and Lošinj in the south. For centuries it was  an important trading post and later the see of a bishop. Since 1976 Osor hosts a classical music festival in the summer. The Cathedral, the ruins of two monasteries, an archaeological and a small episcopal museum are all worth a visit.

Mali Lošinj – the capital of the island

the lively island capital of Mali Lošinj is 20 km from Nerezine. Formerly a maritime centre  with shipbuilding, a merchant fleet and a naval school, it later developed into a popular Austrian spa. Today Mali Lošinj is the tourist centre of the island with many shops, kiosks and cafes framing the large harbour.

Island hopping

a mail and supply ship leaves the port of Mali Lošinj for daily trips to various small  islands in the vicinity: Susak, Unije, Ilovik, and Srakane. The 3 to 4-hour boat trips offer interesting insights into everyday island life.

A day in Cres

Cres, the capital of the neighbouring island of Cres, is easily reached by bus or car. The islands are connected by a bridge at Osor. For centuries the town was the Venetian capital of the  entire archipelago. To this day, not only does an italian dialect influence the language of the island, but also the urban structure of narrow streets and courtyards seems Venetian.
