Top 10 reasons to visit Krk island

Breathtaking and diverse landscape. Rich cultural-historical heritage. Exciting places to explore and moments to experience. It’s the extraordinary island of Krk and here are ten reasons more why Krk is the ideal holiday destination.

1. Glagolitic script

Glagolitic script was used in written monuments and documents in Croatia until the 19th century. Krk is exceptionally rich in glagolitic monuments such as the 11th century Baška tablet found in Jurandvor or others found in Glavotok Franciscan monastery and elsewhere on the island. For a unique holiday experience, visitors can learn more about the script at summer schools of Glagolitsa.

2. Fulfinum/Mirine

Not far from Omišalj, visitors can explore the ancient Roman town Fulfinum from the 1st century together with the 5th century early Christian complex Mirine. To fully understand life as it once was, the annual Days of Antiquity held mid July take the visitors back to the time of gladiators, antique crafts and cuisine, Roman-style clothing and music.

3. The Frankopans

From the 12th to the 17th century the Frankopans were influential Croatian noblemen whose rule spread from Krk onto the mainland. To follow their trail, go on a route of discovery from their first possession Gradec (near Vrbnik), Krk town castle and Košljun monastery to other locations on the mainland. To get a glimpse of life at the time of the Frankopans, visit the famous Krk town fair Lovrečeva or other events dedicated to them.
