Apoxyomenus - In 1999, an antique bronze statue of the Greek athlete, Apoxyomenus, was found in
the sea not far from Lošinj. The statue, 192 centimetres tall and 2000 years old, lay buried between
two rocks and its discovery was a worldwide sensation. The Croatian Apoxyomenus is one of seven
similar, well-preserved, statues in the world. Following exhaustive restorative work, the statue was
returned to Mali Lošinj, "Kvarner Palace”, where it can be seen from 2011.
