Croatia factsGeography quiz
Which Croatian island is the largest? Both Krk and Cres.
Krk had been thought to be the largest Adriatic island, with an area of 405.78 km2 until a geographical survey and remeasurements done in 2011 determined that the neighbouring island of Cres has an equal surface area. Krk is the most populous island in the Adriatic sea, with multiple towns and villages that contain a total of 19,383 (2011) inhabitants.
In which city is the Diocletian's Palace? (See photo) Split.
The palace was built for the Roman emperor Diocletian at the turn of the 4th and 3rd centuries, today it is about half of the old town of Split, Croatia. While it is referred to as a "palace" because of its intended use as the retirement residence of Diocletian, the term can be misleading as the structure more resembles a large fortress: about half of it was for Diocletian's personal use, and the rest housed the military garrison.
