City of Cres
The largest city on the island is the town of Cres. The old part of the city is characterized by narrow streets and high houses, on some of which are old coats of arms. The old town has been surrounded by walls, and you could only enter the city through three gates. In the city center the main square (Square of Frane Petrića), on which numerous cultural events are held, is situated. In addition, the city lodge and pillory, to which numerous offenders were tied, are located on the square. The inhabitants of Cres are now mainly engaged in tourism, the beginnings of which lie in the 19th century. The development of tourism in Opatija started the development of the Kvarner islands, so in 1845 about two hundred visitors came to the island by steamer. Cres is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Croatia and beyond.
