City of Krk info (Krk island)
The town of Krk is the right place for you if you are a fan of history. The town was founded by the Illyrians from the Liburnian tribe Curicta. The tribe was named after the stone island (Kar-ikt) it lived on, and the town Krk was named after it. Along with the Frankopan Castle, the Krk Cathedral is one of the most distinct symbols of Krk. The cathedral was first mentioned in 1186, and dedicated to The Assumption of Mary. Christianity came to the town relatively early, as evidenced by the Illyrian tombstones. The old town is entered through the four gates, which were built before the Roman times and which remain undamaged. Krk is an important tourist centre, which is one of the main reasons for development and survival of the town through history. Also, Krk is a world renowned destination because of its cultural heritage.
