A dynamic history of the island of Krk was determined
by advantageous geographical position (trading routes), mild climate,
sufficiently cultivated land and a considerable number of hills for the
establishment of the villages. Its earliest traces date back to prehistory.
Although still unexplored systematically, the remains of this ancient past have
been found on strategically placed hills (around the church of St. Peter in
Gabonjin) and in the caves of the island of Krk.
