Malinska- ideal place for a vacation at any time of the year
Malinska, an area on the island of Krk which did not have a settled, castle centre. The whole area is known as Dubašnica and is located in the western part of the island. At the same time, it is the only part of the island of Krk for which we know the exact period it was inhabited.
In fact, Dubašnica and its southern part, almost to the city of Krk was almost without permanent settlers until the 15th century. The area’s name comes from the name of an oak tree, and there are dense forests and pastures located here together with some cultivated land. Even before the 12th century Dubašnica was mainly part of the area of Omišalj, although part of it was under the rule of the city of Krk.
Malinska, as the centre of Dubašnica, was once an island port for the export of wood, and a favourite tourist destination for the Viennese aristocracy. In the 15th century it was mentioned as an anchorage point where boats sheltered during the period of strong winds, especially the strong jugo wind. When the first steamship arrived in Malinska in 1866, the port for the export of wood became a climatic healing point thanks to its mild climate with around 260 days of sun per year. Today it is considered one of the most famous tourist destinations on the island, thanks to its beaches and hotel industry and because of its family tourism.
