History of Njivice written in stone

Njivice has always been part of the Omišalj citadel, and today it is a part of Omisalj Municipality. It is assumed that the part of the island of Krk where Njivice is situated today was inhabited already in ancient times.

Njivice was mentioned for the first time in written records dating back to 1474. In the last centuries, the inhabitants of Njivice have mainly engaged in fishing, olive growing and cattle breeding, and it is no surprise that the recognizable image of Njivice was unimaginable without houses by the seafront, boats, fishing nets and crates full of fish.

It is also interesting that Njivice is the youngest parish on the island of Krk. The parish church was built in 1905 on the site of the former church that was located here.

The first mention of Njivice in 1474 in the grant of the Frankopan counts of Krk is connected with the church that preceded today's parish church.

From this former church comes the pre-Romanesque pluteus - a stone slab from the 11th - 12th century exhibited in the parish church. It is decorated with Croatian interlace - a typical old croatian three-ribbon pattern.
