One of the cool places in Krk, the cafe Casa dei Frangipane in the harbour, is named after the dynasty of the Frankopan, which was very influential in Croatia up to the 16th century. The Frankopan sovereigns tried to defend their estate both against the turkish invaders and the Venetians and where ultimately defeated by the Austrians, when Croatia got absorbed in the Austro-Hungarian empire.

  1. Love that image. Exactly the right moment. As to Krk, well, it’s just 3 hours from Villach, it’s really a shame that I am not there more often. And of course, when you are there the next time, I could come down for an afternoon 🙂
