Welcome to Krk Google Map

Part of the Kvarner Gulf , Krk Island is Croatia's biggest island , measuring a solid 409 sq km. The southern part of the island is more forested more fertile and features impressive Baska (Bashka) beach , one of Croatia's rare sandy beaches. The northwestern part of the island gets is subject to the fierce bura wind which leaves it with a barren wind-whipped look. In between is medieval Krk Town which gets most of the tourism , tiny Vrbnik clinging to a hill and known as the centre for Krk's excellent Zlatina wine and Punat where you can take a boat to the Franciscan monastery that lies on much-photographed Kosljun island just offshore. The port of Malinska is another pleasant tourist resort with sand beaches.

Krk holds an prominent place in the development of a Croatian national identity as it was an important centre of the Glagolitic script. A number of Glagolitic monuments have their origin in Krk including the Baska Tablet from Jurandvor near Baska , the Statute of Vrbnik and the Missal of Vrbnik from Vrbnik. The Glagolitic script was used on the island of Krk until the beginning of the 19th century.

Krk is not the place to get away from it all as the major centres are packed with German and Austrian tourists from spring to autumn. Nevertheless it's easy to get to and there's tons of stuff to do.
