due to the collapse of shipbuilding, but then a new economic sector appeared – tourism. In 1898, Lovran got the
official status of a spa centre while the real boom of tourism occurred at the beginning of the 20th century. During that
period, the water supply system, public baths and many other buildings were built and tramlines were introduced. During the
First World War, the Kingdom of Italy occupied Lovran and the fascist rule brought on a difficult period for the local population.

was freed and annexed to Yugoslavia. Tourism and economy started to gradually recover again. In this period, today's renowned
orthopedic hospital was built. In 1991, after the fall of Yugoslavia, Lovran become an integral part of Croatia.
