Cres is a long hilly island, the second biggest island in Croatia and is also one of the last habitats of a rare bird species griffon vulture. It is home to a fresh water lake of Vrana. The myth of Lake Vrana is that there is a castle under the water, and that a rich sister would not give her poor sister money. She was punished by her castle being under water, on some windy days can hear the bell on top of the tower still ringing today. Cres is the main town and it is a typical Mediterranean fishermen paradise.
