Fragrances and Tastes of Lošinj

UNWTO Ulysses Award for Innovation in Public Policy and Governance

Second Runner-up: Fragrances and Tastes of Lošinj 

The project "Scents and Flavours of Lošinj" is characterised by a strong link between public and private partnerships. The basis of our project and our vision of tourism lies in the sustainable and responsible tourism. We are developing the centre of excellence – from our youngest in the kindergarten to educating adults and life-long learning. We educate the locals and our visitors on the importance of environmental protection, health, cultivating and using different plants, aromatherapy, etc., and we enjoy in wellness treatments created on the basis of essential oils obtained from local plants. We learn how to use the wild plants in cooking in Adriano's scented cuisine.
The quality of life of our locals and our guests' satisfaction are important to us so we measure the quality of service in all segments. Our approach to the project is multidisciplinary and we continue to learn and build it with our entire community, like a mosaic where everyone creates a single element to build the story of our destination.


We are extremely proud of such a huge global success of our small destination. This award goes to all our fellow citizens, to everyone who, to a greater or lesser extent, supported the concept of tourism that encompasses health, vitality, biodiversity, sustainable development, and responsibility. We wish to thank the World Tourism Organization and to everybody who supported us, joined this project, or contributed with their ideas. We continue with further development of our beautiful archipelago that we have proudly presented to the world with the same energy and in the same fashion. “
