Mali Lošinj
Candidature for Entente Florale Europe

Mali Lošinj, a renowned holiday resort on the island of Lošinj, is the official candidate for Entente Florale Europe, a prestigious international award that promotes a greener and more pleasant environment in holiday resorts. The winners of the competition will be announced in September 2009, but already this candidature – which means the fulfilment of certain strict criteria – is something Mali Lošinj can be very proud of.

Entente Florale Europe is one of the most prestigious international awards, and the fact that Mali Lošinj is the official Croatian candidate in the villages category is already a valuable recognition.
International jury, made up of representatives of all 12 AEFP/EFE member states, will stay in Mali Lošinj and evaluate the town in the second half of June 2009. The winner of the Entente Florale Europe competition will be declared in the second half of September 2009 in Cardiff, the UK town that will host next year's presentation ceremony.
