The enthusiasts from SRD “Udice”, the organizers of spear-fishing competition, came up with an idea to organize a spear-fishing competition on the Eve of New Year. While the entire Europe is covered in snow, Mali Lošinj has a very pleasant weather, so this is the way to draw the attention of the public and guests on the mild climate of Lošinj. The idea was realized in 1959 and this tradition of holding New Year spear-fishing competitions has remained active up to today.
The competition of City Cup takes place in the local waters of the island of Lošinj, and the most interesting part is the arrival of contestants and the beginning of catch weighing , last day in the sports hall on Bočac at 5:30 p.m. (14.12.2019.).
