Mountains, seaside resorts and islands
Kvarner is located at the foot of the highest mountain in Istria, Ucka (1398 metres). Here you will find the fabulous Abbey with the elegant promenade and the islands of Krk, Cres and Pag. The mountain range acts as a natural protection against cold drafts, making the Abbey famous as a centre of wellness. Along the coast and on the islands you will find lush greenery, the perfect place to try some walking or cycling!
The islands are easy to reach by ferry. The island of Krk(Veglia), full of beautiful bays and beaches, is easily reached by a bridge that connects the island to the mainland. Kvarner, besides beautiful landscapes, offers the finest seafood in the Mediterranean, Kvarner scampi.
