When I was a little boy we went on island of Krk by small boat and sometimes that was almost an adventure. Nowadays there is a bridge connecting the mainland and the island what makes this trip much easier. However, due to a strong wind, sometimes in the winter the bridge have to be out of traffic.
Kraljevica is a small place north of Novi, we used to go there in a shipyard watching boat production and reparing.
There is a huge medieval fortress in this place, one of the biggest on the Adriatic coast, worth to visit.
I dunno the name of this little chapel, it was a kind of mysterious place for us kids because eveytime we were in Bribir the chapel was closed and we never could see what is inside of it. The whole chapel is made of stone in Romanesque style.
My memories go back in the past when we celebrated the First of May, it was habbit to eat delicious grilled lamb meat in the town of Bribir. Sometimes we kids were allowed to have a drop of cold bear which usually finished up in our noses.
There is an beautiful parish church in Bribir, situated on the top of the hill that dominates the whole area. From the terrace, in front of the church, there is spectacular view all over to the island of Krk.
Bribir is a small village up in the hills in the surroundings of Novi Vinodolski. Here on the picture you can see the fortress of well known noble family of Frankopans. The Frankopans have ruled whole thids area in the medieval times, and were known as the great warriors against the Turks.
The chanel between the mainland and the island of Krk lead to the open sea. A unique colour of the water (month of October) because it is usually dark blu coloured.
The sea-water is very clean and clear in whole area around Novi Vinodolski. There are a few springs of the sweat-water under the sea, therefore it is very refreshing in the summer, especially after the rain.
The aqua tower on the hill above the town, it is the best possible sightseeing spot. in whole area.
We used to collect the blackberries in the area around the tower but it wasn't an easy task. There are lot of sharp stones all over this place and therefore you have to watch for the snakes.
