Real estate island of Krk

Where is it?
Until "recently the largest", the island of Krk is located in the Adriatic Sea between the Istrian peninsula and the Croatian Littoral, and thus belongs to the Kvarner group of islands with administrative headquarters in the city of Krk. With a population of over 19,000, this island makes it one of the fastest growing in population. This phenomenon was facilitated by the construction of the Krk Bridge, which connected the island with Rijeka and turned most of the island into the suburbs of larger cities.
The island of Krk is divided into seven units of local self-government and administration. These are the City of Krk and the municipalities: Omišalj , Malinska - Dubašnica , Dobrinj , Vrbnik , Punat and Baška . Rijeka Airport is located on the island, which makes the island a transit, but also allows travelers from all over the world to come and visit the island, Istria or central Croatia.

Is Krk the largest Croatian island (interesting)?

Covering an area of 405.78 km2, it was considered the largest island until 1993 in the Adriatic. However, detailed measurements led to the conclusion that Cres and Krk have exactly the same (identical) surface, which sounds incredible and almost impossible. Given that the level of the Adriatic Sea is gradually rising, the coast of Cres is still steeper and it is believed that it will be slower to be smaller than Krk, so we will say that Cres is still the largest island in Croatia.
