Although many take a winter vacation to go skiing or to go traveling to warmer places, we believe the winter vacation can be well spent on the island of Krk.

Everybody knows by now you can’t leave Krk hungry, the reason being the delicious home cuisine. Food specific for the Krk area is definitely seafood, so most restaurants offer fresh fish, shrimp, crabs, calamari, octopus and clams. We recommend the well known local lamb, unique for the sheep grazing. Then, there is also the well-known pasta, the so-called šurlice, made with homemade dough that works excellent with goulashes and sauces. The specialties of Krk are unique for the herbs and the addition of homemade olive oil, an essential part of every original specialty that gives the food a special taste to it, leaving you wanting more.
