Krk is a Croatian island in the northern Adriatic Sea, located near Rijeka in the Bay of Kvarner and part of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar county.
It has for many years been thought the largest Adriatic island, with an area of 405.78 km2, although recent measurements now give the neighbouring island of Cres an equal surface area. Krk is also the most populous island, with numerous towns and villages totalling 19,286 (2011).
Krk is located rather near the mainland and has been connected to it via a 1,430 m two-arch concrete bridge (which you can see on this card) since 1980, one of the longest concrete bridges in the world.
Krk is a popular tourist destination, because of the situation and proximity to Slovenia, southern Germany, Austria, and northern Italy.
