The beautiful city of Krk developed in the Middle Ages on the site of the Roman town of Curicum. The old town of Krk is encircled by stone walls which together with the four gates and forts define the ancient part of the city. There are three preserved defense forts: the City Hall, the multi – angular Tower and the Frankopan Castle. Inside town walls there are stone cobbled streets with coffee bars, restaurants, shops, souvenir shops and galleries. The town of Krk is a very attractive and most visited place on the island of Krk.
