Morning departure to Mali Lošinj, passing by islands Ilovik, Silba, Olib, with lunch on board. Upon arrival, our English-speaking guide will walk us through Mali Lošinj, the largest town on Lošinj Island. Situated on top of a long natural harbor and surrounded by graceful, gently weathered Mediterranean townhouses and green hills, the town straddles both coasts on the narrowest section of the island. After the city tour, we`ll visit the Museum of Apoxyomenos. The Museum is a unique archaeological and architectural cultural institution in the region and it is entirely dedicated to only one exhibit – the bronze statue of a young athlete, the Apoxyomenos. The statue was discovered in 1997 by a Belgian tourist at the depth of 45 m. In 1999, it was taken out of the sea where it spent nearly two millennia. The Museum of Apoxyomenos tells the original story of an athlete of perfect physical proportions, a piece of art that is impressive in its wholeness and beauty of the composition. The bronze statue of Apoxyomenos is from the time of Greek civilization, dates to either 2nd or 1st c. B.C. and its name stemming from the Greek term for an athlete that is cleaning his body from oil, sweat, and sand after exercise or competition. The Lošinj athlete depicts the moment when he’s cleaning his scraper. The statue is entirely preserved, only missing a little finger of the left hand, eyes, and the scraper, while the right foot was still attached to the original bronze base. This museum is created especially for this beautiful antique sculpture and it has become Lošinj’s symbol and trademark. The Apoxyomenos’ timeless beauty, his unusual and mysterious story, and distinctive museum setting haven’t left anyone unimpressed! Overnight in Mali Lošinj.
