The municipality of Vrbnik (1,245 inhabitants in 2001, 944 in the village of Vrbnik) is located in the eastern part of the Krk island, opposing Novi Vinodolski on the mainland. Apart from tourism, Vribnik is well-known for a high quality white wine produced there, called žlahtina. Some of the best restaurants on the Adriatic Sea are there, too.
