Anniversary of Koversada naturist resort
story says that the first naturist visiting Koversada
was famous Venetian adventurer Giacomo Casanova
who decided to take a break from his exerting journeys
on this small islet.
Two hundred years later Rudolf Halbig, German owner
of "Miramare" travel agency, searching for a perfect
spot along the Adriatic coast where he could invite
his friends of nature and unbounded enjoyment of
sun and sea, came to Vrsar and found there what
he was looking for.
First naturists put up in the village of Vrsar and
went to Koversada islet for swimming and sunbathing.
As the years were passing by, the islet became too
small for increasing number of visitors. In the
