Planning a Trip
Getting There & Getting Around
By Car -- The Krk bridge connects the mainland with the island ($2.60 one-way). Ferries leave from Valbiska on the west side of the island for Cres and Losinj, while another ferry line makes regular runs between Lopar on Rab and Baska on Krk's southern end during the summer months. There are several ferries each day from June through September, but ferry schedules are limited the rest of the year. Check the Jadrolinja website, www.jadrolinja.hr, for schedule and price details.
By Bus -- Krk Town is well-served by buses from Rijeka and so are the nearby towns of Omisalj, Njivice, Malinska, and Punat, which are stops on the same route. Eleven of the 14 daily buses from Rijeka to Krk also go on to Baska in the extreme southern part of the island. You can continue to Cres and Losinj by bus, but schedules are not firm, so check with Jadrolinja to see what's what.
Even if you don't have your own car, you can see all of Krk's main sites. Buses run regular routes between major towns and connect with less frequent, local lines.
