Cres - Osor info
Osor is a small tourist town on the island of Cres in Primorje-Gorski Kotar county in Croatia. It is located on the narrow isthmus that once connected, but now separates the islands of Cres and Lošinj. The channel was dug during the ancient Romans to allow navigation from the northern Adriatic to Dalmatia within the protected channel. Osor has been founded on the Cres side of once unique island. Osor administratively belongs to Mali Lošinj and it has only about a hundred permanent inhabitants. Osor was once a powerful and rich trading town, especially after the canal was dug. From this glorious period are preserved high well-preserved walls that still surround the old town. Trade has prospered here until the Middle Ages when the Venetians took over, and the city of Cres took the role of the merchant center of this part of Kvarner. Today, this small and quiet place attracts many visitors and boaters because of its long and fascinating history, but also because of the pristine nature, and extremely clean sea.
