Life in the Mediterranean town of Malinska, named after a fifteenth-century mill (=malin), has always been centered around curious small churches, which have amassed considerable artistic wealth over the course of centuries. The amazing coloring of Krk island continues on the gorgeous beaches with their mesmerizing scents of untouched flora, which eagerly await their many new and returning visitors.
Malinska - a gallery of small churches
The scented Mediterranean shrubbery which strives for a place in the sun amidst the traces of Christian past is Malinska's charming welcome to those who come to explore its wide bay. Fifth-century remains of sacral buildings still rest in the shade of Cickini forest, in whose green embrace lies Malinska.
An aroma of the past spreads outside the boundaries of the town, all the way to the fifteenth-century Church of Saint Mary Magdalene, whose monastery includes a sacral art museum and interesting ethnological collections.
Much like its past, the present of Malinska was built around sacral architecture. The new church of Saint Nicholas stands out in the town center, its chambers often doubling as art galleries and exhibition spaces.
