It is worthwhile to see

Mali Losinj

The church of St. Martin, which dates back to 1450, is situated in the town cemetery. From here you can read the history of Lošinj from the tombstones themselves. The priests who used to serve in this church were Glagolitic monks. They also served as notaries, and drew up testaments, contracts and the like for the local people.

Both the Piazza and the Parish Church of the Nativity of the Virgin date back to the period between 1696. and 1775. The church has three naves, and features relics of St. Romulus as well as a painting of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary on the altar.

The church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Walking along the Cikat seafront will lead you to the furthest point of Cikat, Annunziata, which is named after the votive church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is the very heart of Losinj. Today's church, with its classical facade, was built in 1858 alongside an older, smaller church. Before the cape view stretches to the open sea, extending off into the distance. From this very point, Losinj women and mothers saw off ships and greeted them home again.

Even today, when the ship, passing Cape Annunziata, sounds his horn in greeting, you should know that the captain of the ship is from Losinj.
