DAY 4: LOSINJ – CRES – LOSINJ
Breakfast at the hotel. This day you will visit the Cres island (connected with a bridge to Losinj island) From the distance the island appears as a rugged chain of hills. Even when you visit the island you often find it bare. One reason for that is the location of Cres; the island is not protected from the cold wind Bura blowing from the mainland, so there is mainly low-growing vegetation in the western part of the island and only on the eastern side of Cres you can find deciduous trees. A road leads from the north to the south where a swing bridge connects the Cres island with the island of Losinj. In ancient times the two islands were separated by an 11 meter wide channel. The channel was built either by the Illyrians or the Romans; there is no exact information about it. Approximately in the middle of the island lies the Vrana Lake. Swimming and fishing are forbidden in the lake. The reason for that is that since 1953 the drinking water for the town of Cres and also for the cities in the neighboring island of Losinj comes from the lake. The water surface of the lake is 13 meters above sea level, the ground 75 meters below sea level.
Cres is well known for its excellent lamb, so make sure to try that. The lamb has an extraordinary taste thanks to the traditional free sheep grazing. If you are more into fish and seafood, you should also try some fresh fish, shrimps, lobsters and other crabs and shells prepared in many different ways. That’s why we will let you try a lunch based on it After the visit of Cres return to Losinj Overnight in Losinj
