There are a lot of ways to enjoy breath-taking landscapes of the Island of Krk and its surroundings. We were mainly experiencing it on bike or through hiking trails which, for us, is a perfect way of spending an active holiday. But for our last night on this island we wanted to try something more traditional, more of a local way of life.
And we did! Thanks to our friend’s recommendation,...
