- Island of Krk, Island of Kosljun, Underwater Flora & Fauna

Krk, the largest island in the Adriatic, is easily accessible via Tito's bridge which connects it to the mainland. Officially opened in 1980 and constructed in two reinforced concrete arches, the bridge has a total length of 1430 m, and was considered an unique engineering feat at the time.


The first town on the island of Krk after the bridge is Njivice, where the famous fish restaurant Rivica is awaiting hungry guests with a selection of fresh seafood dishes, juicy meat platters and quality wines.

The bay of Kvarner surprises and often amazes with its rich underwater flora and fauna.
It stretches between the shores of Istria in the north and Vinodol to the south-east, encompassing the islands of Krk, Cres, Losinj and Rab. Some 1,5 km from the shore the average water depth is between 60 and 65 m.
Only around Losinj does the depth increase to approximately 120 m.


Prevailing geographic, geological and hydrological conditions of the northern Adriatic had over millennia an evolutionary influence over the aquatic life in this unique bay. The waters are rich in fish of many species - apart from blue fish such as sardine, anchovy, mackerel, bonito and tuna there are many white fish varieties like sea bass, dentex, grouper, hake, ray. The Cephalopod family is represented by octopus, cuttlefish and squid, whilst amongst the crustacea best known is the norwegian lobster, or scampi.
