The Venetian Republic enhances the city defence system. Considering the traditional maritime orientation of the population, a nautical education school was opened in Cres. The number of inhabitants of the Cres cadastral municipality culminated in 1869. The fall of the number of inhabitants after that followed because of the well known destiny of sails-shipping, the appearance of philoxere that destroyed grape wines and for other reasons. In the last hundred or so years the minimum was registered in the 1953 register, when only 1.833 inhabitants remained in the city after the Italian optation.
