The first signs of Christianity on the island of Krk date back to the 5th century AD, when Krk was under the Roman empire. The cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Krk was built on the remains of Roman baths. The cathedral with its bell tower is one of the most recognisable symbols of the city.
The Frankopan family was very religious and inside the cathedral is their family chapel. What’s more, close to the cathedral is the Church of St. Quirinus, a patron of the city and Krk is approximately 45 km away from the Shrine Our Lady of Trsat.
