The local fishermens at Vrbnik
There exist long time tradition of fishing on island of Krk and the local fishermen are very skillful. The sea-water around the island of Krk is very rich of all kind of fishes and in particularly of scamps. Since the coastal part of the island is mostly rocky with numerous caves, it is the natural habitation of the scamps. This two fishermen, on the picture, are checking their nets before pulling it out.
Rose garden in Omišalj
It almost looks like a kind of competition towards the locals, who is going to cultivate the more beautiful roses.
This one is the rose garden in Omišalj with unique colours of the flowers and of exceptional beauty. Too bad you cannot sniff at the roses, trust me, the flavour is unique.
When strolling around the places of island of Krk, you'll noticed lots of flowers almost everywhere. Even the house looks poor, it's windows or onestep courtyards in front are decorated with care and love.
The small courtyad
The small courtyard, right in front of the entrance to the house, is in particularly attractive. One don't need to be well known architect to built such a beauty. Wonderful staircase lead to the first floor where extraordinary balcony stands in the perfect harmony.
There are number of almost museums exibits displayed in the small courtyard, fascinating!
The stone house in Njivice
You have probably noticed it when visiting my pages, I don't like much the contemporary architecture.
This stone house can be seen in the town of Njivice and is unfortunately one of the few left in the place. It is, as far as I am concerned, the most beautiful stone house I've seen in whole island, looks almost like an museum.
Do not miss it when visiting the island of Krk, it is easy to find situated in the old core of the village.
Glagoljica (Glagolitic) is old Croatian inscription, used mainly by the church authorities, before Croats have start to aply latin inscription. There are two centres in Croatia today for learning about glagoljica, one is on island of Krk and another one is in Istria.
