Krk  is a Croatian island in the northern Adriatic Sea, located near Rijeka in the Bay of Kvarner and part of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.

For many years, Krk has been thought to be the largest Adriatic island, with an area of 405.78 km2 (156.67 sq mi), although recent measurements now give the neighboring island of Cres an equal surface area. Krk is the most populous Adriatic island, with numerous towns and villages that contain a total of 19,383 (2011) inhabitants.


Exploring the island’s landscape, why not getting to know underwater world also? If you are skilled in diving, or if you have mastered diving skills in one of the island’s diving schools, we suggest an organized diving tour of a sunken Greek motorboat Peltastis not far from Šilo, who headed on his last voyage in late 60-ies of the last century. This is surely the most visited island diving destination. Besides Peltastis near Šilo, underwater world of small island Plavnik preserves a sunken sailboat, which probably dates from the the reign of Napoleon. You will discover the secrets of underwater world in organized tours of many underwater locations-on the island Krk and on nearby islands and islets (Plavnik, Prvić Cres …).
