Interestingly, there are two reserves of exceptionally valuable, evergreen forest vegetation on the island of Krk (Košljun and Glavotok). Also interesting is the fact that both are linked to Franciscan monasteries and their diligent tenants. One is the holm-oak forest of Glavotok, listed among protected natural assets as a special reserve of forest vegetation. This is rather unusual, because it is an artificially planted forest and, according to Croatia’s current nature-protection regulations, the status of forest park would seem more appropriate.
