Krk Attractions - Top Sightseeing Spots on the Island
Beautifully diverse, fascinating and unique - the allure of Krk goes beyond stunning beaches and crystal clear sea! Go on a sightseeing tour of the island and discover the top Krk attractions for a special touch to your holiday:
The Frankopan legacy
Walk down the path of history by discovering the legacy of the Frankopans! The famous Croatian noble family had its stronghold on the island and their former estate is a must-see sight nowadays. So, picture the life as it once was as you visit the Frankopan Castle in the Town of Krk.
Among other Krk attractions related to the Frankopans is Košljun, the quiet islet between Krk town and Punat. The Frankopan family greatly supported the Franciscan order, still present here today. Apart from seeing the monastery and the museum, visitors can enjoy the tranquility of the botanical garden.
Invaluable Glagolitic heritage
The monuments in Glagolitic script are among the most unique Krk attractions. The oldest Slavic script was used by Croatians for almost a millennium up until the 19th century. Apart from the Baška Tablet, the oldest document mentioning the Croatian name, Krk has numerous other examples of Glagolitic heritage. So, follow the Glagolitic Alphabet Trail near Baška and visit places such as Glavotok monastery and the towns of Vrbnik and Dobrinj for more.
