Shopping on the island

If nothing else, you need to buy at least a couple of souvenirs for family and friends, and then, it seems that you always need that one thing that you forgot to pack or your kids have seen some other kids playing with the one beach toy they don’t have. So, even on your vacation, you must do some shopping.

In the town of Malinska, there are three supermarkets – “Plodine”, “Tommy” and “Cvijet Kvarnera”, located on the main island road, which can cover pretty much all the basic necessities, including a section of beach stuff program. In the island capital – Krk, there is additionally a “Lidl” store that will give a “close to home” feeling for most of our central European guests.

When it comes to souvenir shopping, there are souvenir shops literally in every town on the island, so the choice is big and variety of souvenirs really goes from the standard, “Greetings from Krk” fridge magnets to handmade art, like ceramic souvenirs or natural beauty products from herbs of island Krk.

Authentic souvenir tips:

  • Žlahtina wine – variety is specific as it is only grown in vineyards on island Krk (town of Vrbnik)
  • Olive oil from the island
  • Handcrafted soaps made of lavender or immortelle (Immortelle farm – near Omišalj)
  • Bukaleta – handcrafted ceramic pot, used for keeping wine on celebrations in past times

Once you are finally on the vacation, you might think you don’t need anything more, but that is rarely the case.
