Today, Cres is largely focused on tourism, whose beginnings date back to 1845, which makes it the second place with the longest tourist tradition on the Adriatic. It is located in the bay, which enabled the development of fisheries, shipping and shipbuilding. The old town offers an insight into its past and present - narrow and tall houses lean against each other forming a maze. On some facades of the buildings, old coats of arms are still visible, denoting the occupations of the people who lived in them. In the past, the old town was surrounded by high walls and the city could be entered through three city gates.
