In 1412 Duke Frankopan built a monastery alongside a little medieval church and granted it to the order of the Paulists.
The monastery, today the Kaštel Hotel, became the centre of culture and education. A settlement soon sprang up, and a port, and the town was called Crikvenica, after the old church. Eleven hotels of various different categories, features and locations, as well as accommodation in private houses, will make your stay in Crikvenica comfortable and interesting.
