The inaccessibility of the place adds a special mystique. Church of St. Krševan on the island of Krk is not easy to reach and only an adventurer who dares to take the forest paths at the end of the road receives a reward in the form of a view of a small, but still monumental church.

Sv. Krševan

This church was built in the 12th century and belongs to the Romanesque style of construction. This means that it looks more like a fortress than a church with its thick stone walls and small windows. It is possible that at one point it even had a defensive purpose.

It is, by the way, a votive church of sailors and fishermen.

However, it is not the first building built in that remote place. Remains of ancient buildings with pottery and amphorae were found in the vicinity of the church.
