Since ancient times, the island of Krk, the largest island in Croatia, has also been known as the Golden Island due to its temperate climate, abundant vegetation, and advantageous location in Kvarner Bay.
Because of its proximity to the mainland and numerous transportation options, it is a popular tourist destination.
The towns of Krk, Baska, Malinska, Njivice, Omišalj, Punat and Marina Punat, Glavotok, and Silo have all been awarded Blue Flags for their commitment to environmental sustainability and cleanliness. Krk is a paradise for gourmets thanks to its abundance of delicious local produce and the availability of a noble wine made from the Zlahtina grape.
All your vacation dreams can come true at this Adriatic gem, a year-round hotspot. Krk is a little slice of paradise for everyone: families looking to spend quality time together, divers and anyone who loves to explore the world beneath the sea, boaters and active holiday enthusiasts.
