[Otok Lošinj | Lošinj Island] - Photo thread

Lošinj, Primorsko-goranska county, Croatia


Info from wikepedia ;

Lošinj (pronounced low-sheen) (Italian Lussino, Latin Apsorrus) is a Croatian island in the northern Adriatic Sea, in the Kvarner gulf. It is near the city of Rijeka, and also a part of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar county.

Lošinj is part of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar CountyThe towns of Lošinj are listed here with their Italian name equivalents in parentheses: Nerezine (Neresine), Sveti Jakov (San Giacomo Lussignano), Ćunski (Chiusi Lussignano), Artaturi (Artatore), Mali Lošinj (Lussinpiccolo) and Veli Lošinj (Lussingrande).

A regional road runs through the island; ferry connections (via the island of Cres) include Brestova - Porozina, Merag - Valbiska, Mali Lošinj - Zadar, Mali Lošinj - Pula. There is also an airport on the island of Lošinj.


Geography

Lošinj is a part of the Cres-Lošinj archipelago. The Cres-Lošinj archipelago includes Cres and Lošinj, and the smaller islands of Unije, Ilovik, Susak, Vele Srakane, Male Srakane and a number of unhabited small islands. Cres has the biggest land area, and Lošinj is second. Cres and Lošinj are connected by a small bridge in the town of Osor (Italian Ossero), on the island of Cres.

Lošinj is the 11th largest island in the Adriatic Sea, 33 km long, with the width varying from 4.75 km in the north and middle of the island, to 0.25 km near the town of Mali Lošinj. The total coastline of the island is 112.7 km.

With over 2600 hours of sunlight a year, the island has become a popular destination for German and Italian tourists in the summer months. Average air humidity is 70%, and the average summer temperature is 24 °C (75 °F) and 7 °C (45 °F) during the winter.

The highest elevations are the mountains Televrin (also called Osoršćica) (588 m) and Sv. Nikola (557 m). The towns of Nerezine and Sveti Jakov lie at their base. The island is formed predominantly of chalk limestone and dolomite rocks. There are sand deposits in the western part of the Kurila peninsula.

The island has a mild climate and evergreen vegetation (like myrtle, holm oak, and laurel). The highest elevations in the north have more sparse vegetation. Veli Lošinj, Čikat and the south-western coast are ringed by pine forests.

History

The island of Lošinj has been thought to be inhabited since ancient times. This is evidenced by hill-forts at the foot of Osoršćica and around the port of Mali Lošinj. The Romans called this island Apsorrus (Ptolemy), and named the islands of Lošinj and Cres together as Apsirtides. In several places, ruins of Roman villas have been excavated (villae rusticae: Liski, Sveti Jakov, and Studenčić near Ćunski). In the Middle Ages, Lošinj was unpopulated and the property of the clerical and secular nobility of Osor. Built in the Roman Era, several small eremitic churches have been preserved (St. Lovreć near Osor, and St. James in Sveti Jakov).

The first evidence of settlers from the mainland was in 1280. Pursuant to a contract with Osor, their settlements gained self-governance in 1389. The name Lošinj was first mentioned in 1384. Parallel with the gradual decline of Osor from the 15th century onwards, the settlements Veli Lošinj and Mali Lošinj played an increasingly important role.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, trade, shipbuilding and seafaring on the island developed more intensely. After the fall of the Republic of Venice, Lošinj was under the Austro-Hungarian rule up to its breaking off in 1918; under Italy up to 1943. In 1945 the island was annexed to Yugoslavia. Lošinj was then an under Croatian rule in 1991 after Croatia's declared independence from Yugoslavia.

The 1945 annexation of the island to Yugoslavia was associated with a substantial exodus of its people of Italian descent to Italy and to other countries, due to their unwillingness to live under Yugoslav communist rule. These expatriates today are a vibrant "community" living in Italy and around the world, and publish a newsletter (http://www.lussinpiccolo-italia.net) which keeps their memories and traditions alive.

Let's start with...

Veli Lošinj ("Big" Lošinj)

BL, ti samo fasade vrebas

a cuj, primorska mjesta su ti vise izlozena malo ekstremnijim vremenskim prilikama, vlaznosti, i to sve u kombinaciji sa soli, zbog cega fasade imaju kraci vijek trajanja nego napr. fasade u unutrasnjosti. najvise fasada upravo stradava od vlage, pogotovo starija zdanja iz cijih fasada doslovno mozes cijediti vodu koja se cijelo stoljece ili dva talozila u porama zdanja.
Sanacije vecine primorskih fasada starijih zdanja su visestruko skuplje kako god okrenes; od cesce potrebe za zahvatima pa do temeljitijih zahvatima na istima.

ne ja... ja sam cak i objasnjavao u istra threadu zasto su fasadwe takve, kad je neko pitao.
ali fasade govore o tome koliko se vodi racuna o tom mjestu, gradu.

npr. rovinjske fasade dobro stanje, a buje lose. i to govori mnogo o ta dva grada u kakvom su stanju.

Istra je posebna prica. Nema ti to previse veze s tim koliko tko posvecuje paznje cemu. Niti Rovinj bas ne blijesti od svjezih fasada.
Zapustenost fasada, odnosno zgrada u cijelini u nekolicini istarskih gradica ti je usko vezano uz problem nerijesenih imovinsko-pravnih odnosa, postoji i podatak da se taj problem odnosi na cak 90ak posto zapustenih istarskih nekretnina.

Povijest Istre u 20. stoljecu je bila jako burna; odlazak mnostva domicilnog stanovistva hrvata i slovenaca, a posebno talijana pred dolaskom YU komunizma, a tu znas i sam kaj se dogodilo, odnosno tko je zaposjeo te objekte i sa kakvim 'pravom', i sad nakon tih svih godina kad se imovina vraca pravim vlasnicima, oni su ili raseljeni po inozemstvu ili nisu vise medju zivima, a nekretnina u nicijem vlasnistvu propada, nazalost.

I went to Mali Losinj in July this year (Ujac mi zivi tamo). Last time I went there was 1992 and a lot has changed, there is a nice renovated square, some palms have been planted, all the buildings along the Riva have been cleaned up and painted, there is a new hotel right in the centre of Mali Losinj and many new bars, caffes & restaurants. Its a really attractive little town.

Losinj je Zakon !
