Just in the middle of the small peninsula Sv Marak you can find the atmospheric ruined church. It is not know exactly when the church was built, but it must have been (long) before the 16th century (it was first mentioned in the written sources of the 16th century as a very old church of unknown origin and date).
Nearby you can enjoy a sandy beach of Sv.Marak. Very popular in the summer, it's a really quite place at other times.
On this islet there is a Franciscan monastery. It was founded in 1447.
Here you can visit a church which was built on the ruins of a Benedictine church.Moreover there is a museum of ethnography, a collection of paintings a small archaeological museum.
Kosljun islet is a very green area with several paths and several chapels. It is a kind of little forest.
You can see on this picture of the traditional kitchen items as: brunciæ (an iron pot for cooking food), krnica (a wooden dish for mixing dough), a copper kaba for water, a clay disch, peka (dish for baking bread), tikvica for carrying water and other things.
The old core of the town is rich of monuments, some of them visible at the first sight, and many other hidden which you'll have to discovere by yourself. The Saint Qvirinus is the patron saint of the town and you'll see its tablets all over the place. Venetian lion, carved in the stone, recognize the island as a part of Venetian Republic in its medieval period. The town of Krk was also a part of ancient Roman empire, but not much of remains survived. There is very interesting Roman mosaic, a part of a bath, which can be seen in one cafe-bar, just a foot from the main square.
You maybe know my passion for cats. So here it is, the white cat from the Island of Krk :) A little disturbed by the turist crowd and by the sun, laying in the shadow and looking towards the sea...
Krk is a beautiful old stone town with a soul. I simply enjoyed walking through these narrow streets, looking stone houses as if each one is telling its story. Also, there can be seen small souvenir-shops with original souvenirs, and also I saw a shop with original ancient costumes of that region.
Take a walk, you won't be disappointed....
Omisalj is one of those small coastal towns which makes you to feel relaxed when strolling around. It takes less then one hour to walk its core, side to side, but twice more if going down to the seashore.
Omisalj is typical seaside resort with houses clustering each other and narrow and short streets in between that wander into irregular shapes. There still excist old core, which in times was reduced, after the invasion of newly built houses which serve as a pansions for the tourists.
Inside the church there are some nicely made and looking wooden statues, representing Virgin Mary and a high priest. My guess is also it is covered with gold sheets.
Nicely done. I just like this crafted statue. Still have some doubts if this one is wooden or porcelain.
Finally, sailing on my personal yacht, leaving Krk and checking for good winds...arr..darn, what is that silly waiter doing here on my yacht? what? I'm not on the sea yet?!?
What are you doing? Leave me alone..Now I'm awake and I will find another place to rest...:)
Krusija in Italian means, “To flow”.
This ditch is located at the mouth of an underground stream. Up to the 20th century, women would come here to wash their laundry.
