The largest Croatian island, the island of Krk, is an attractive tourist destination. It’s on a favorable geographic location, and is well known for the cultural heritage for which it was named the cradle of Croatian culture. The Baska Tablet was found in the church of St. Lucija in Jurdanovo near Baška. That is an old Croatian monument written in Glagolitic. It is an important source for the history of the Croatian people and Croatian language.
Since ancient times, there is a connection between the island Krk and the number seven – it was inhabited by Croats in the seventh century, it was defended against pirates seven times, the last prince of Krk was the seventh Duke Frankopan. Today the island has seven centers. These are Baška, Dobrinj, Krk, Malinska, Omišalj, Punat and Vrbnik. So there are seven variants dialects, seven customs, costumes and dances. Besides, each center offers something else – Krk is the administrative center and Omišalj is the airport.
The island is situated in the zone of moderate and mild climate. The average summer temperature is around 23 degrees Celsius, and the water is warm, about 20 degrees. There you can often expect south winds, but rarely rain.

There is mud on the island in the bay Klimno. Many satisfied people return because of the mud, because it is good for the gout. Another specificity of this beach is that as long as you walk in water it is always up to the knee.
