Krk, Croatia – visitor information

Krk is also the main town of the island and it is the administrative, economic and political centre. This town is centuries old and it was one of the Roman municipalities and you can still see the famous cathedral that was built on the spot of Roman thermae. The mentioned sacral building rose in the 5th century and along with the Frankopan citadel is the symbol of town and the island. The Frankopan citadel was built by generations of noblemen in defence purposes. Today theatre performances and other events take place in this relic of past times. The city core is surrounded by town walls that were built throughout centuries and most of the fortifying wall is still preserved. Within the walls there are many valuable sacral monuments and structures such as the church of St. Michael the Archangel and the dual church of St. Quirinus and Margaret. The historic core of town is comprised out of stone streets characteristic for small coastal towns in which you can find numerous restaurants and taverns that offer local delicacies. Be sure to try the olive oil, wine Vrbnicka zlahtina, lamb and surlice (typical pasta) and the especially appreciated shrimp. We recommend you visit restaurants Karaka and Frankopan and the tavern Corsaro . Krk also takes pride in its beautiful gravely beaches from which many have the blue flag which is a symbol of cleanliness. The beaches have additional content, sport courts and catering facilities. One beach is characteristic because it is intended for pets, but there are also nudist beaches and handicapped accessible ones. There are boats, bicycles and pedal boats available for renting and you can take a diving, sailing, windsurfing or water skiing courses or simply play beach volley so we are sure that even the activity lovers won’t be bored.
