Today I would like to share with you some pictures and my experience from the beautiful Island of Krk in Croatia. I have already visited Croatia twice. The first time I went there was to celebrate New Year’s Eve 2017 in Zagreb and the second time to have some calm holiday on the island of Krk in August this year. Of course, the capital of Croatia – Zagreb needs to have an extra post just for itself and today I will concentrate only on the Island of Krk.
