Krk Croatia is one of rare examples of successful integration of industry with tourism. On the northern part of the island is a petrochemical plant and natural gas storages, near the city of Omišalj (Omisalj), while the rest of the island is highly oriented on tourism. Strict environmental measures and a hidden location make industry on the island almost invisible to visitors.
Krk Croatia has many different landscapes. The north-east part of the island is almost bare because of the strong wind called bura, while the western part abounds with greenery and bays. Inland, rocky hills alternate with fertile fields. This sort of relief favorably provides for the cultivation of grapes and the production of the well-known wine Vrbnička Žlahtina (Zlatina).
