Krk is joint largest of the Dalmatian islands, and joined to the mainland by a concrete road bridge which is one of the world's longest, which means its an easy holiday destination for people coming from Slovenia, Germany, Hungary and Austria looking for a simple bucket and spade beach holiday.

The northern edge of the island is the most verdant, covered in forests and land used to grow fruit and grapes, and the southern regions are much barer, but rich in interesting karst formations on a limestone plain. The north western coast is the least built on and the best place for visitors looking for exploration or adventure. For those interested in man's influence there's much in the way of history and archaeology to appreciate, including old and oft ruined cathedrals and religious monuments, but there's also a thriving and colourful folk tradition to have some fun amongst.

As well as the bridges Krk is easily accessed by ferry, or air – it has its own airport.
