Kosljun - Monastery Museum, Krk Island

3.8
#3 of 10 in Museums in Kvarner Bay Islands
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.

  • I thought to hear some more and see how there was lived by the former inhabitants. Like the monks. This was limited. Quite a nice museum with banknotes from all over the world. Also some costumes and an old boat. Church is very nice. Relax in the forest on the island. There you can do with a big boat or a small taxi. That costs a little more but is more fun and you can agree on the back time as well.

  • It is often included in the tours of the islands that depart from Punat or Krk, so it is not so bad to visit it, the islet is really an oase of peace and to see also the Franciscan coinvento
