Island Krk Holidays


Krk (pronounced [kr̩̂k]; German: Vegl; Latin: Curicta; Italian: Veglia; Vegliot Dalmatian: Vikla; Ancient Greek Kyrikon, Κύρικον) is a Croatian island in the northern Adriatic Sea, located near Rijeka in the Bay of Kvarner and part of Primorje-Gorski Kotar county. For many years, Krk has been thought to be the largest Adriatic island, with an area of 405.78 km2 (156.67 sq mi),[1][2] although recent measurements now give the neighboring island of Cres an equal surface area. Krk is the most populous Adriatic island, with numerous towns and villages that contain a total of 19,286 (2011) inhabitants. Archeological finds show that the island has been inhabited without interruption since the Neolithic age. ... Find out more →
