The location of the Krk Island at the northern most part of the Adriatic makes it the "first" and the closest island for all visitors who come from the continental part of Europe in search for the Mediterranean atmosphere. In the 1980s, the extremely convenient location of Krk Island was helped by the addition of a strategic structure: a mile long Krk Bridge which connects the Island Krk to the mainland.
The Island of Krk is a diverse island that offers variety of attractions and experiences, whether you like the culture, the nature or the upbeat tourist places: a thousand years old towns, small rural villages, well equipped city beaches, secluded swimming bays, lively bars and clubs and small and quiet restaurants and caffe bars.
On the island Krk there are several dozen marked tourist paths which lead through the woods and by the sea shore. There are printed guides available at any tourist office. The underwater world around the island of Krk is very interesting, and there are several local and international diving clubs. You can get a diving licence at the local harbor master's office. You need to present your passport, your diving qualification and pay a fee. To fill bottles you need to contact one of the diving clubs.
