Krk is the main town on the island. Krk is an old Glagolitic center, with a history stretching back to ancient times. The harbor has a total of thirty berths intended for sailors, mainly along the outer side of the sloping pier on the main municipal waterfront, where large yachts are moored, and along the waterfront that are suitable for small boats. Thirty buoys are also anchored in the bay of Dražica, protected by a small breakwater. The rest of the harbor is occupied by boatmen from Krk, boats belonging to the locals, moorings of the shipyard and numerous fishing boats that come here during the fishing season. At the bottom of the harbor is a gasoline station for vessels and another one floating next to the angle pier along the breakwater. It may be said that Krk is very lively.
In Krk, you should certainly visit the Old Town, walk the narrow streets, peek into the churches, climb the walls that used to surround the town and visit the Frankopan Castle. The fifth-century Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary, connected to the twelfth-century Church of Saint Quirinus, has a valuable and well presented cathedral treasury. You could also visit the Church of Our Lady of Health and the Church of Saint Francis.
The Old Town and waterfront are the places where everything happens in Krk, including the main festival at the beginning of August, when the Feast of Saint Lawrence, the patron saint of the city, is celebrated and the Krk Fair is held, during which the city takes on a Renaissance atmosphere. The festival of Krk Evenings continues throughout the summer, a whirl of concerts, dramatic performances, exhibitions and other cultural events. There are also many such events in the Volsonis, a unique bar/club in and beneath the town walls , where you sit next to the ancient foundations of the ramparts. This combination of a night bar, café and pizzeria at Vela Placa (the main square) attracts various musical events held here. In the town of Krk, as well as on the entire island, you can eat well. The traditional foods include šurlice, homemade pasta with meat and cheese, prepared everywhere, as well as lamb from Krk and neighboring island of Cres.
