Osor a perfect place for relaxation and entertainment A- A A+

Osor has a population of just over 100 inhabitants (the number is much higher during the summer). Once it was a center of Cres-Lošinj archipelago. The town of Apsorus (greek name for Osor) has been built at the narrow land coating which connected two big islands. During the Ancient time a channel was dug through the coating, and it's still functional. The town is surrounded by wall that was built in Middle Age.
