The city of Krk lies on the island of the same name and is its largest center. It has nice, rocky and pebble beaches and climatic buildings of the Old Town. It is a popular holiday destination also due to the bridge connection to the mainland of Croatia.
The beginnings of Krk date back to Roman times. Within the Old Town you can find fragments of the old walls, and on the ruins of the Roman baths stands one of the most famous monuments, the cathedral from the 5th century. Next to it is the Frankopanów castle, which in the past served as defensive functions, and today is a cultural center and a place for numerous events outdoor.
The buildings of the old part of Krk are compact and very atmospheric. Narrow streets lead to charming squares surrounded by cafes and restaurants. The most famous of them is the market or Vela Placa, where you can also find premises open until late at night.
Most hotels, pensions and apartments are located outside the Old Town. Closer to the sea, apart from compact buildings, there are campsites, many of which have direct access to the beaches. And these are often hidden in small coves that provide peace and quiet for vacationers. On larger beaches you can find recreational and swimming equipment rentals.
In the summer, many entertainment and cultural events take place in Krk. The most important of them include the wine festival, the reconstruction of the sea battle and a stylized medieval fair with a rich offer of accompanying events.
