|TOP PLACES TO EXPLORE ON ISLAND KRK
|A cave in Rudine on the island of Krk. This geological attraction is must see. The existence of this cave has been known, at Rudin or above the Slivanjska bay, for over a hundred years when its interior (with its former entrance being in the shape of a grotto!) was hidden and it has aroused interest for its unrevealed secrets and the beauty of its calcite decorations. From the time that the story about a smuggler’s hidden treasure was created, to the first entrances of interested visitors, its paths have been readjusted and people can now move more freely.
