Kosljun - cultural monument island

Not far from the town of Krk, in the next bay, is Košljun island where back in ancient times a mansion was built. In this nature reserve with about 400 plant species is a Franciscan monastery and Church of the Annunciation of Mary from the 15th century. After the death of the last of the Benedictine abbot, Franciscans from Krk have moved the island and the Benedictine church was enlarged, rebuilt and consecrated. The monastery has operated as the first high school which introduced the Croatian language in Istria and Kvarner. Nowadays, on the island there is a permanent exhibition of religious art and ethnographic museum in which are preserved many valuable artifacts that the monks acquired for centuries. The monastery also has a rich library with about 30,000 books.

In the south of the island, near Baska, is place Jurandvor with the early Romanesque church of St. Lucia. The church keeps the most important monument of the Croatian language and literature - Baska tablet. It is written in Croatian letter - Glagolitic (around 1100.).
