Crikvenica caters to families and an older clientele seeking a beach vacation Sometimes it seems as though the entire town is arranged around that concept. However, if you're a history buff and want to take a break from the sun, the nearby town of Novi Vinodolski just 9km (5 1/2 miles) south of Crikvenica will fill the bill. The Vinodol Statute recognizing the rights of local citizens and Frankopan rule was signed in Novi Vinodolski in 1288. You also can explore the remains of a 13th-century Frankopan castle in the hills above the town.
