    Omisalj-the church

    by BruceDunning Written Jun 11, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the first village after crossing the bridge. It also is the location of the airport that serves Rijeka. Seems like a long distance, but I guess they were looking for a flat plain. Omisalj has one primary church and a smaller one we did not see. The main church; Marijina Usnesenja; called by us Parish Church of the Assumption, is right in the middle of the village. This is also where the tourists come for an indoctrination. The church is really nice inside, and many ornate artifacts.

    Vbrnik-Churches

    by BruceDunning Updated Jun 11, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are three major churches in this smallest community on the island. They also may be the nicest and most quaint in that regard because they are not "touched" by tourism. The churches are old for a couple, dating back to 14-16th centuries.

    Vbrnik-streets and Life

    by BruceDunning Updated Jun 11, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a wonderful little village that has a number of churches and narrow winding streets. The locals live here like tourists do not exist, and that is the way it should be to get the local flavor of a culture. With my rough knowledge of Hrvatski, they thought I was okay when ordering a beer and food.

    Church of St.Lucy in Jurandvor

    by datapanik Written Sep 22, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Romanesque Church of St.Lucy in the tiny village of Jurandvor contains the Baska Tablet which is one the most important artefacts of Croatian language and culture. This ancient stone tablet is inscribed in Glagolithic script and dates from about 1100. Entrance to the church costs 15 kuna and is arranged by the nearby visitor centre building.
    Jurandvor is only 2km from Baska. A good way to get there is by hiring a bike in Baska for a couple of hours. In the village you can also buy organic produce such as olive oil, honey and wine from roadside stalls.

  • Trip to the island Rab

    by Lisalu Written Apr 4, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rab is a wonderful island. Smaller then Krk and therefore maybe to small for me to spend there my whole vacation. But you shouldn't miss to visit it. There are even nicer beaches. And the main capital Rab on that island is very historical and verrrrrry nice ;-)

    When you walk down the staircase there is a long beach to the left. It's no sand only stones.. but still the whater was terrific. And directly beside the old historical city centre.

    Islet Prvic

    A panoramic view from St. Ivan Church. If you dont want to be in the crowd, and have a boat, visit this islet and find your private beach.
