CROATIA ISLANDS

Krk Island in Croatia

Of all the Croatian islands, Krk is the closest to Europe. Some don't even consider it an island, since it was connected to the Croatian mainland in 1980 via a 1400 meter bridge of reinforced concrete. At 4099 square kilometers, the island of Krk is one of the largest islands in the Adriatic. The population of Krk is approximately 16,000, and the capital is also called Krk. There is an airport on this island, with direct flights to Oslo, London, and Cologne.

A few of the most famous beaches on the island are Malinska, Punat, Baska, and Vrbnik. One of the must-see sights on Krk is Soline Bay, which is rich in healthy mud, with waters only one meter high and warm almost six months of the year. This bay is also famous for having what some say are the most beautiful shells in the world.

Baska, considered one of the most beautiful coastal towns due to its architecture, is the second largest town on the Kvarner island of Krk.
