Spending winter holidays on the island of Krk is something you’d never think of?
Well, in December – as almost every country in this world – also Croatia turns into a beautiful winter wonderland.
Decorated pine trees, Christmas songs, the scent of mulled wine and cooked sausages while you stroll through the streets are only a part of this whole winter holiday atmosphere.

After a long tourist season, December is the time of the year when locals can finally relax and rest their body and soul! That doesn’t mean there are no more tourist here, but there is not as crowded as in summer season and locals have more time for being themselves and to enjoy this special time of the year.
Unlike the continental part of Croatia, there is almost never snowing on the island of Krk which makes all the Christmas concerts and fairs even more enjoyable.
Island of Krk’s Christmas offer
Every town or village on the Island of Krk has organised special entertainment programme so even a Christmas Fair Hopping from town to town is not a bad idea. Visiting magical fairs full of traditional and authentic specialties is a true escape from everyday life.
