Krk is, after Cres, the biggest Adriatic island and is for tourists from western and central Europe the most accessible island in Croatia. It is situated in the northern Adriatic, in the Kvarner bay, and is since 1980. connected to mainland by bridge. Near the bridge there is an airport which makes the island Krk even faster and easier to access from various world countries. There is also a ferry port Valbiska on the island which connects Krk with neighbouring islands (Cres, Lošinj, Rab).
The capital Krk, with 5 500 inhabitants, is the oldest settlement on the island. Romanesque cathedral and the Frankopan castle are recognizable motives of the town, and its narrow streets, which have been counting different steps for over 3 000 years, have a special charm and are perfect for summer evening promenades. Besides Krk, there are several medieval settlements on the island which will, with a perfume of melancholy, tell you the story of Croatian history and show you hidden glagolithic letters in dark passageways.
Krk has many beautiful bays and various beaches. Camping Marta is located on the western side of the island which is famous for the well-wooded and wind-protected coast. The natural surroundings of beaches with pebbles and turqouise-blue sea are the perfect scene for daydreaming and relaxation.
