Vacation in a holiday home in Krk
An island of superlatives, Krk (pronounced “Kirk,” with a rolled “r”) is the northernmost and largest island in the Croatian Adriatic Coast. A picture postcard region with azure seascapes, virgin beaches and rural locales, it's an ideal getaway for couples, families and groups who are well-served by the numerous holiday apartments here. The gorgeous setting attracts travellers from throughout Europe, who flock to the holiday houses in Krk.
A Hotbed of History
This popular island in Croatia holds the distinction of being continuously inhabited and visited since the Neolithic Period. Its popularity persists as holiday homes continue to welcome a steady flow of visitors. Earthworks from the Iron and Bronze Age can be found in prehistoric settlements scattered across this island, which switched hands between the Romans, Venetians, Austrians, Italians and finally the Croatians, among other cultural groups. The tenth-century Kamplin Square still commands a tremendous respect from Krk's inhabitants, who are proud of their medieval walled city. If you're lucky, your holiday apartments could offer striking views of the town by night!
Day Trips & Activities
Once you've settled into your holiday house, head out to the historical island towns of Silo, Baska, Vrbnik, Punat, Malinska and of course the city of Krk. The islet of Plavnik, known for its corals and marine life, is worth an excursion. The best time to visit is summer when festivals unfold against the backdrop of the cathedral, the Franciscan monasteries, the Frankopan Castle and the aforementioned City Walls. The capital city Zagreb is a short flight away.
Families with children tend to rent holiday houses (alternately known as holiday rentals or holiday homes) because of the comfort, privacy and affordability factor. Book yourself a vacation in a holiday home and let Krk work its charm on you!
