VRBNIK



Vrbnik is typical old Mediterranean city,first time mentioned in XII century. Its situated at the northeast coast of the island of Krk, above the Velebit strait, by the small bay of St. Marco. It is located immediately above the sea, on the 49 meter high cliff, which almost vertically dives into the sea from its north side. Access is very difficult from the sea side, while there is steep road going from the port to the city. It is not a surprise that folk song mention it in the poem Vrbnik above the sea, high mountain. In green vineyards of Vrbnik fields there is even today cultivated very famous Vrbnik Zlatina. We can suggest everyone to visit one of wine cellar in the city and injoy wine you cant forget.
Vrbnik is famous spiritual center with many churches inside city walls. Here is also Vitezic library with almost 10 000 books.

churches and chapels


Many of the numerous churches and chapels in the territory are still visible: the parish church with its splendid Gothic chapel of the Rosary and the fourteenth-century chapel dedicated to Saint John the Baptist. Patron of Vrbnik.
