We can say that the island of Krk is the most accessible island in Croatia. It is connected by road and sea with its center - the town of Krk. During the summer, the city of Krk turns into a very interesting place with numerous festivals and concerts. Throughout the year, it offers its guests interesting facilities, mild climate, recreation and greenery. Something for everyone. The interior of the island is intertwined with bicycle paths that challenge cyclists to explore the landscape, but also the gastronomic offer. They won't go wrong if they agree to eat fresh fish or even Krk lamb.

We recommend 2 destinations: Vrbnik and Silo


The town of Vrbnik has been pushing its story for more than 900 years, providing a real island tradition. You can enjoy nature and explore the history of the city with a top gastronomic offer. Go and discover the vineyards - you will find famous Vrbnik žlahtina (wine) and Krk's pastures suitable for sheep breeding.

If you are looking for action, only 6 km away from Vrbnik in Puntarska uvala is Cable Krk! There you can rent equipment and hire instructors if you are a beginner, but also enjoy yourself, as an experienced boarder. Cable Krk is 650 m long, usual speed 30 - 32 km / h.

In addition to water boarding and water skiing, you can also enjoy diving. Approximately 2 km south of Vrbnik are Tenki. In the 10 m long tunnel, at a depth of 15 m, there are red gorgonians - good visibility, low currents, great location for diving, suitable for all diving categories. Vrbnica Cave - a wide, 20 m deep hall is located 100 m to the right of the entrance to the harbor. An endemic species of Kolombatić was found in the cave.

Silo also offers landscapes, magical views and history. Remains of a Roman villa - is an inscription that will take you to the remains of a Byzantine fortress, dating from the 6th century, with the help of similar markings. However, as soon as you indulge in the view of Crikvenica, Selce and the surrounding landscape, it will be clearer that this, now dilapidated "villa", had an additional function - it served as an observatory. From here, the hosts would be stalking thieves and attackers, who have not bypassed this area over the centuries.
