The island of Krk
The island of Krk is situated in an excellent geographical position, in the heart of the Bay of Kvarner, connected by a bridge with the land, in the immediate vicinity of the urban center of the region - the city of Rijeka. Krk is the island of tradition and unforgettable experiences; island of castles and fortresses, preserved environment. It is the cradle of literacy and rich cultural heritage. „He“ is sometimes wild and sometimes indefinite in his diversity, but again shiny and rich with the pristine and tumultuous past.
The island of Krk has long been called „the golden island“ because of the gold coloured nature that covers it: the vineyards with a special charm, olive trees which provide the perfect fruit, sandy beaches and dense forests, white stone and sharp capes, green pastures that talk about a thousand-year old history. Krk looks like incorrectly prolixed rectangle, which extends from the town of Kraljevica in the north, down to Senj in the south. Mediterranean climate ensures favorable growth of various plants, fertile soil and mild winters, warm and clear sea and the variety of wildlife. The island of Krk and its archipelago are adorned with twenty islands, islets and reefs whose depths hide colorful and diverse flora and fauna, shoals of fish, caves, shipwrecks, masts, pirates ... Krk has also other pearls like the two lakes, ornithological and vegetational reserves, giving him such a unique picture of urban island with the spirit of ancient civilizations.
