Risika is a village on the eastern coast of the Island of Krk, it is about 6 km from Vrbnik and 25 km from the bridge away. Risika was first mentioned in 13th century and it is probably named after plant heather (erica). Risika is a scattered village, and it has about 150 permanent residents.

Speaking of the events in Risika, the swimming marathon between Vrbnik and Risika, which takes place at the end of July, is definitely worth mentioning. A unique experience is the manifestation "Gradec on the moonlight" which takes place in a special atmosphere in the abandoned medieval Frankopan fortress Gradec, near Risika. We suggest that you also enjoy the folk festival of St. Jerolim in late September.
From the sights, we want to emphasize here the parish church of St. Jerome and the ruins of the fort Gradec, home of the Krk Counts Frankopans - west of Risika, on the old road to the neighbor village Garica. We must also mention the ruins of the church of St. Mark, above the homonymous sandy beach. Here are also the foundations of a Roman fortress and the remains of a Roman villa rustica are still visible under the sea.
