This paper presents parking issues in the City of Krk. Increasing the number of vehicles on the roads results in vehicle accommodation or parking. This problem is most evident in big towns and cities on the coast, where during the summer months the population increases because of tourists who come in large numbers. The City of Krk is one of the most important tourist destinations of the homonymous island and as such, it attracts more and more tourists in the area. The increasing number of vehicles enter the centre of the city in search of a parking space, especially in summer months, causing traffic congestion which results in air pollution from vehicles producing exhaust gases and in increased noise, all of which negatively affects the local population. In this paper three variants are proposed in order to address the parking problem in the City of Krk, by increasing the parking capacity of the vehicles in the centre of the city. In these variants, the garage-parking facility is the main object of the parking problem, where the parking facilities are expanded with the construction of the before mentioned facility and the removal of the existing parking lots. The aim of the paper is to present the proposed solutions to produce positive effects of the parking problem in the City of Krk. The solution is reflected in the relocation of roads in the very centre of the city from the vehicles that are looking for parking places which has the effect of reducing traffic congestion and thus decreasing the air pollution and having a lesser impact of noise on the local environment. It also has positive effects on the quality of life for the local population. The purpose of this paper is to show the issue of parking in a city and how this problem can be solved taking into account the available space and rules of traffic flow in the area of the city.
