There are kilometers of beautiful beaches, guaranteed sun and of course - Croatian drinks that will add splendor to the trip. What to see in Krk? What kind of spirits to try? Where to stay We advise!

Guide to Krk

The largest of the Adriatic islands is connected to the mainland by a convenient bridge. Thanks to it, people choosing a holiday in Krk will get there quickly and without problems. The problem, however, may be the choice of the perfect place where you will stay longer - there are many interesting locations on the island. However, it is definitely worth going to the cities on the south or west coast of the island. This is where the main holiday resorts are located. They will be a great base for trips to other places. You can start your visit to Krk from the capital of the region, the city of the same name. You will find there a medieval fortification towering over the area and a historic old town. Another point of the trip is Vrbnik, considered the local capital of wine. It is there that the grapes ripen from which the famous zlahtina is made. It is worth tasting the drink while strolling around the picturesque center. The most famous place on the island is Baška, famous for the most beautiful beach in the country. The town is situated at the foot of the mountains with numerous hiking routes. Trekking fans can go to one of the nearby peaks. It is also not far from here to Stara Baśka, a small fishing and pastoral village. The ideal conditions there for family tourism include the intimate atmosphere and the lack of crowded beaches. In addition, untouched nature and numerous coves. Sounds perfect, doesn't it?

Croatian drinks

What would a vacation in Croatia be without tasting local products and specialties? Their selection is large, especially when it comes to alcohol available in the country. Croatian wines deserve special attention. The most famous are the varieties - dingač from southern Dalmatia, malvazika from the Istrian peninsula, plavac mali from the Pelješac peninsula, babić - wine from the vicinity of the town of Šibenik, and zlahtina, which you will try during your vacation on Krk . In Croatia, other alcohols are also consumed, including the popular strong rakija. The most appreciated varieties are: plum slijvovica, grape lozovica, grape and herb travarica, pear vilijamowa and apricot kajsijevica. Lighter liquors are fruit liqueurs fashionable in Croatia, including maraschino with a bitter cherry flavor, pear kruskovac and nut orahovac. Croats do not shy away from beer, and the national pride is the Karlovac lager. When going to Croatia, however, you must remember that you can only export 2 liters of wine and 1 liter of stronger alcohol from the country without customs duty.

Camps in Primorsko-Goranska

Accommodation in Krk is available in various standards.

I like closer and longer journeys - with an analog camera and a great appetite, because I always like to get to know the local cuisine during the trip. My favorite region in Europe is the Balkans, especially Montenegro, Albania and Bosnia with Herzegovina, which I have visited several times. I dream of returning to beautiful and unpredictable Iceland. I am currently in Southeast Asia.
