Dobrinj is located on a hill about 200 meters high and is one of the medieval castles that were centers of literacy in the past. The special value of this beautiful place is the knowledge that the parish church of St. Stjepan is already mentioned in the 12th century.
A number of documents and Glagolitic inscriptions testify to Dobrinje as the center of Glagoliticism at that time.
For centuries, Dobrinjština was an extremely agricultural region. Animal husbandry and olive growing, as well as the exploitation of forest resources, were also represented. The place is also known for its colorful folk costumes, folklore events, sopela school (Krk’s wind instrument) and traditional local cuisine. In this island center, autochthonous stone houses and narrow stone streets that are reminiscent of the past prevail.
