Festra – a festival of tradition


The FesTra Festival, organised by Njivice Resort and Omišalj Municipality Tourist Board, brings together numerous exhibitors who present traditional products of the island of Krk, such as olive oil, cheese and various lavender products. The festival takes place during three weekends and includes performances by folklore societies from the island of Krk and guests from all over Croatia.

They present traditional songs and dances as well as typical dishes from individual Croatian regions. The festival includes various workshops, such as wool felting and the making of lavender souvenirs. Visitors can also learn the basics of the Glagolitic alphabet and traditional musical instruments from all parts of Croatia. The island of Krk is home to the Frankopan noble family, which is why the Count of Krk Mikula Frankopan regularly visits the festival with the Countess and knights.
