The island of Krk

THE ISLAND OF KRK

Krk is located in the Quarner Bay (Kvarnerski zaljev), Northern Adriatic and it is connected to the mainland by a bridge through the island of St. Marko.  It is the largest island in the Adriatic, with an area of 405.78km2, 38 km in length, up to 20 km wide and 190km long coastline.

Krk is a unique island in many respects – each place on the island has its own distinctive features so you should definitely take an active holiday and visit other parts of Krk, not only the place you are situated in. It is also well connected to the mainland (by a bridge) and it is in the immediate vicinity of the city and the port of Rijeka. There are also interesting destinations on neighbouring islands – Cres, Lošinj and Rab, which you ca go to by ferry from Krk.

Krk is the Mediterranean island which is the closest to middle and western European countries. The easiest way to come to the island is by a vehicle over the bridge. Since Rijeka airport is located on Krk near Omišalj, Krk is connected by charter flights to some European cities. However, you can come to Krk by ferries from Cres (Valbiska, on Cres – Merag, on Krk), Senj (Senj, mainland – Baška, Krk) and Rab (Lopar, Rab – Baška, Krk). A toll for crossing the bridge is paid once, when you enter the island.

Krk is also well known for its unique marina, the largest on the Adriatic, located in Punat. It provides all the necessary additional services you may require.

The average temperature of the sea in summer is mostly 23 to 25 degrees Celsius.
