The ideal geographical location is an advantage that the island of Krk has well assessed in terms of tourism. We refer to the closeness of the mainland when twenty years ago a bridge was constructed linking Krk with the mainland, making it even more accessible. Good transport links have made the island of Krk a favourite excursion destination, but also rich one-day excursions can be made form the island as well.
We most of all recommend an excursion to the Plitvica Lakes and Northern Velebit national parks. The real researcher amongst you will of course want to discover Rijeka - the centre of the Primorje-Gorski kotar County, and staying in Rijeka should include a mandatory visit to Opatija – the tourist ‘Adriatic pearl’.
Interesting is the one-day visit to Istra, where we strongly recommend a stay in its central region rather than on the coast! Finally, the island of Krk is linked to the three islands Rab, Cres and Lošinj by a ferry line which may also become destinations for your one-day excursions. Don’t miss out!
Once you’ve chosen quality accommodation based on your own criteria and gained at least a general impression of the town by getting to know its most important parts, everything is then ready for the start of your active vacation. This is what, Krk can offer:
