Visited this small castle around lunchtime. Inside it was quite hot but up on the towers I got a nice view of the city and port. We even got a chance to swim into the castle from the sea.

Casle ia small but well reconstructed. Unfortunately there is almost nothing inside. There are some "medieval" weapons and costumes which are really bad replicas. However there is a nice view from walls.

Tickets to get in are really cheap (only 3€). When you climb on top of a wall you have a beautiful wiew over the city and sea.

Krk fortress is still the same. It has nice position, very simple, basic exhibition and perfect view from the top. Fortress has walls all around and open yard inside the walls. You need to climb up to the high walls to look down the bay...More

Since we came to an old walled city it was great to find out some of the history by visiting this castle. A must when visiting Krk

It is a wonderful visit to the island of Krk. Untouched nature, wonderful people and rich history make this place special. Architecture in the city of Krk is enchanting. Everything is built in stone like a castle, an exterior wall, a town hall, squares ......More

Entry is cheap and the custodian very friendly, letting us leave our buggy in reception. An open courtyard with two turrets to climb. Two single room exhibitions show historical clothes and weapons. Nice views from the turrets and section of wall you can walk on....More

Nothing really worth travelling to, but if you are in Krk - just drop in. Pleasant view from the top, not much to see inside, but generally nice atmosphere.

The castle overlooks the bay and the view from above is great(turquoise water and lots of small boats). There are few exibits and you will be disappointed by the very few information found in the guide received at the entrance. Interesting exibition of medieval weapons.
