Following in the tradition of Croatian Confraternities of St. James that have been helping pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela since 1203. , the Croatian Confraternity of St. James has started with the revitalization of medieval pilgrimage routes leading to Santiago de Compostela.
The island of Krk has been chosen as the first section of the Croatian Camino route to be officially marked with yellow arrows (customized with a Croatian traditional symbols) . Official Croatian credential (pilgrim passport) with Camino stamps reflecting the local cultural heritage is available for all pilgrims who’d like to discover this new addition to European network of Camino routes.
Unlike in Spain, Croatia doesn’t have specialized pilgrim hostels. Accommodation is provided at vacation rentals, campsites and hotels. If you need help with organizing accommodation for your Camino Krk we’ll put you in touch with local agencies.
