Kosljun - Monastery Museum, Krk Island

3.8
#4 of 13 in Museums in Primorje-Gorski Kotar County
On a little island surrounded by dark turquoise water, just across from the mainland, you'll find Kosljun - Monastery Museum. The island is known for its 16th century Franciscan monastery, and for the extensive collection of artifacts and items that monks have been collecting here for centuries. The collection today has been turned into a museum within the white, arched walls of the original monastery. The museum showcases productions of both Krk fishermen and farmers, authentic costumes, a zoological collection, and a library. The church here is a museum in itself, having been converted to the Baroque style in the 18th century. Many important pieces of art, including Ptolemy's atlas, can be found here.

    What a beautiful experience!! As rusting, great piece of nature (forest), little tourism. Beautiful boat trip (child also happy;-)), beautiful surroundings, chapels, churches, museum, statues, ... Really worth it, because it takes also not much. Do!!

    Nice trip from Punat, with an hour we had visited the island, in addition you would get some can walk. Particular that there were so many activities on this island from the 15th century. At the port a boat trip booked, 20 kuna for a return, in addition 20 kuna entrance you on the island to a monk is charged (children half-price).

    We took a taxi boat for 60 kN to two to visit the island of Košljun in a Sunday morning... day of the mass of course... as a result, everything was closed (if you wish you can attend mass) the taxi boat is already gone and this one to pick us up after two hours, we were able to do around the island about 10 times in the meantime. There are some very beautiful monuments but nothing exceptional. Once back to punat we wanted to take a tour of the city, but in practice, it is a port no charm. We clearly lost 1 morning of our stay, we would have preferred to do a half-day of additional hiking in Baska (you book find the maps of the hiking in the tourist offices for free)
