Town of Cres
The town of Cres, the biggest town on the island of Cres, is located on the bottom of a well-sheltered bay on the west part of the island. Ancient structures and the ancient fortress of Crepsa bear witness to a long and rich history of the island. The fortified old town centre, shaped in the form of a rectangle punctuated by 5 towers and several gates, was built during Venetian rule and, apart from several later additions, has for the most part retained its appearance to this day. For that reason, a walk through the town centre will take you back to the Mediterranean as it once was and in the footsteps of our ancestors – the people that created a culture that still fascinates us.

Located on a cliff-top 378 metres above sea level, Lubenice is a small village that held great geostrategic importance in the Middle Ages. What can delight you more than charming winding alleys, scattered churches and remnants of a medieval fortifying wall and gates? Just the spectacular view of the sea from high up.

As a village situated between two pebble beaches, Valun was built and inhabited by generations of fishermen and labourers of the island of Cres. This authentic village tells a century-old tale of life by the sea. It is especially interesting to note that, in the church of St. Mark, the Valun Tablet was discovered – one of the oldest Glagolitic monuments, dating back to as early as the 11th century.
