THE RUINS OF OTHERS CHURCHES AND CHAPELS
THE RUINS OF THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY SUNDAY
Today the building at the entrance to the Vrbnik field, right next to the main road does not look like a church since it has lost its function over the passage of time. The Glagolitic inscription shows that it was built in 1445 by master (mestar) Mihovil, and according to a record by the local historian Ivan Feretić it was erected by the Bishop of Krk Franjo I. of Modrus. At the time of the outbreak of the plague in the town of Krk, he fled to Vrbnik and was quarantined in a shrine, thus saving himself from the terrible epidemic. In gratitude, he had a church built where in the past hung the paintings of the defenders against the plague, St Sebastian and St Roch. At the time of the French administration, the church was sold at a public auction, and later it was used as a shelter against bad weather by Vrbnik's farmers.
THE RUINS OF THE CHURCH OF SAINT GEORGE (JUREJ)
The remains of the church are located southeast of Vrbnik, in the bay of Saint Jurej (George), a few kilometres after the bay of Potovosće. It is a Romanesque single-nave church with a semi-circular apse. As a church connected to the Frankopans, it was first mentioned in 1453, in a record stating that it has become a diocesan church where priests from Vrbnik hold their services. It is assumed to have been built in the 12th or 13th century and was abandoned in the 17th century. In the church there is a drawing of the fresco of St George and a three-sail merchant sail boat from the 13th century, which is unique in Croatia.
