Temple of Venus
The remains of the ancient Temple of Venus can be seen inside the shop Memento, in the old town centre of Krk. The remains of the temple can bee seen through the glass floor inside the shop.
Venus was the Roman goddess of love, beauty and marriage. In the Roman Empire the number of temples dedicated to Venus was significantly less when compared with temples built for other Roman gods. Therefore, this temple which dates back to the 1st century BC, is the only temple dedicated to the goddess Venus on the eastern side of the Adriatic (from Greece to Italy), making it even more spectacular.
