Excursions on foot

The small town of Osor is only some five hundred meters from Camp Bijar. Osor is a town with a rich history. Thanks to an artificially made channel, transit traffic between the Dalmatian coast and the North Adriatic used to take place here. The well-preserved foundations of the town walls reveal its ancient history and make this town almost mythical. The entire town is an outdoor museum where artists from all eras have left their mark, from the early-Christian basilica to Meštrović’s monuments. The Amber Route, one of the oldest transport routes, runs through Osor, which is demonstrated by numerous amber decorations found in Illyric graves around Osor.

Popular musical evenings are held in Osor during the summer months: enjoy moments filled with classical music or visit one of the galleries that will surely delight you.

Climbing the Osoršćica hill is one of the 'must-do' excursions and adventures. You will enjoy the fresh air and direct contact with naturally preserved surroundings, find many indigenous plants, and have plenty to see once you get there.

Before you return, get some refreshment in the mountain lodge and collect all your positive impressions.
