The village of Nerezine is located as the first place on the island of Lošinj after crossing the swivel bridge in Osor, an island of Cres.
Nerezine is home to two hundred people, while in the summer months life is on the streets almost all day long. The village is dominated by the Franciscan Church bell tower and monastery (15th century). The church interior is filled with religious art, including the lovely painting of the Virgin with a child of an unknown Venetian painter from the 15th century. There are two other churches in the place.

Nerezine is a village which gradually grew from field labouring and sheepherding to a fishing and seafaring settlement, with a shipyard known for its skilled workmen and construction of wooden ships. There are also 3 ports in Nerezine. The marina for nautical tourists also operates in the main port. The famous shipyard has a long tradition and is still operational today.
