Guess what? Krk is also named and spelled Island of Krk - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.

The Island of Krk is one of the many picturesque islands in Croatia. The island is the largest in Croatia and a magnet for summer tourists, as well. Thus, it is not surprising that hostels in Island of Krk have higher prices than hostels in other Croatian cities. Most hostels in Island of Krk are located in the town of Krk, which is also the main town on the island. Hostels in Island of Krk have generally good facilities and are close to the beach. Finding a hostel on Island of Krk can be tricky during the winter but if you can find one, you may well be one of the few visitors there.

You can access the forty-meter high east coast, Košćera, only by train and the trip in this not very populated area of the island has become a tourist attraction. The limestone structure has created one of the largest caves on the island and one of the most visited in Croatia -- Biserujka, located near Rudin. The Island of Krk has also two lakes in the middle of the island. In the town of Krk, you can visit the Krk Cathedral of the Assumption, the City Wall (parts of which are from the twelfth century), the Twin churches of St. Margaret and St. Quirinus from the twelfth century, and the Frankopan Castle from the fourteenth century.

And, of course, the Island of Krk has great sandy beaches, a lot of bars, restaurants, and places to go out in the summer. Be aware that visiting in the winter can be boring if you look for nightlife, as almost all places are closed. However, you will have a chance to go sightseeing without any tourist crowds. In the late twentieth century, the Island of Krk was connected to the mainland via a bridge of Krk, sponsored by the then-Yugoslav president Josip Broz Tito.
