The Landauf house

A house built in 1909.

This house was built in 1909 by the local entrepreneur Luka Turato during a period of personal and general prosperity in Omišalj. Turato made his fortune in trade, especially wheat, and invested his earnings in tourism. He built the luxury Hotel Jadran and the Blue Terrace in Njivice (which was never completed). He also started building in Slivanjska Cove close to Biserujka Cave but went bankrupt.

As a result of the generosity of Professor Anica Landauf, a niece of Luka Turato, the house became the property of the Municipality of Omišalj.
