The annual Lopar parish feast day is known as Ivanja – the feast of St John. The parish celebration is held on 24 June every year and the locals mark the day by making lavender bundles (so-called “bubice”), which they bring to the church on this feast day.
The remains of St Nicholas’ Church in Sorinj, built by sailors, are still visible, as are the remains of St Rocco’s Church in the very heart of the Lopar Valley and the remains of a building on Lukovac islet.
Lopar offers daily half-day boat trips with a glass bottom in the waters of Lopar and Goli Otok and Grgur.
