Lošinj historical underwater park
The setup of the park consists of a total of 11 different exponents, which have been placed between 5 and 15 meters deep in the water and testify about the rich history of the island and its region. Among the exhibited items, there are replicas of cannons from the 16th century, replicas of ancient amphoras, anchors from the 4th and 5th centuries, Venetian cannons, machine guns from World War II, while the greatest attraction of the underwater park is the replica of the ancient bronze athlete statue “Apoxyomenos” from the 2nd – 1st century B.C., which is also a sort of a symbol of Mali Lošinj. The replica of Apoxyomenos has been placed in the upright position in its natural size, while the entire trail tour of the park is roughly 300 meters long.
All licensed divers can visit the park, and due to relatively shallow waters in which the exhibit items are placed, persons without any diving experience can dive into the park in the company of a diving instructor from the Diver Lošinj diving centre through the so-called “Discovery Dive” program. Children under the age of 12 cannot partake in the program, while all adults can, as long as they don’t have any health issues.
Between May 1st and October 30th, the park is open daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Operating season:
May - October
