Sights and Attractions in Baška

  1. THE BAŠKA TABLET
    The Church of St. Lucy in Jurandvor houses a replica of one of the most significant Croatian monuments - the Baška Tablet. It is the oldest known document containing a Croatian personal name written in the Croatian Glagolitic script.

  2. THE BEACH OF VELA PLAŽA 
    The 1.8 km-long beach of Vela Plaža has been a symbol of Baška's landscape since the inception of its tourism industry. It is the recipient of the European Blue Flag Award that testifies to the high-quality standard of its environment, and is consequently the most popular summer destination for swimmers and beach goers.

  3. THE „PATH TO THE MOON“ 
    The „Path to the Moon“, 7,5 km long trail, is suitable for both hikers and bikers, and runs through a forest area for most of its length; it then reaches a completely barren area called the “Moon Plateau”, which is reminiscent of a rocky desert and is one of the region's must-see locations.

  4. BAŠKA AQUARIUM
    In the very center of Baška you can learn about the rich and diverse underwater world of the Croatian Adriatic through one of the largest collections of Adriatic seashells and sea snails in Croatia. Aquarium Baška, on a 200marea, is home to 21 aquariums with a hundred species of fish and four hundred species of seashells and sea snails.

  5. ZIP LINE
    Athletes, holidaymakers and families with children may enjoy the Edison Zipline, an off-road ride along more than 2 km of cables running through trees and a stunning landscape that will prove truly unforgettable.

  6. BAŠKA’S GLAGOLITIC TRAIL
    Baška's Glagolitic trail meanders through the area’s landscape and the 35 stone sculptures showing all the letters of the Croatian Glagolitic alphabet that are displayed along its path. The BGT guidebook accompanies visitors along the trail by supplying the meaning and explanation of all the individual letters on show, as well as a map indicating the stones’ relevant location.

  7. PRVIĆ ISLAND
    A short boat ride suffices to reach Croatia’s largest uninhabited island that is also protected as a special botanical and ornithological reserve. Although Prvić is not suitable for either walking or exploring, there are several smaller coves along its coast to enjoy the sunshine and the sea.

  8. THE BAYS OF MALA LUKA AND VELA LUKA
    A hiking trail or a taxi boat ride convey visitors to Vela Luka, one of the most beautiful bays in the Adriatic Sea. An additional twenty-minute walk then takes them to the beautiful Mala Luka bay; the neighbouring archaeological site of the Corinthia fortress offers a stunning view of both bays.

  9. THE MULTICELLULAR SHEEPFOLDS
    Numerous hiking and cycling trails pass by multicellular sheepfolds, which are dry-walled structures employed to sort out and count sheep. These sheepfolds are a fundamental example of folk architecture and may be found in just two other locations in Europe, namely Wales (UK) and Iceland.

  10. THE BATOMALJ SHRINE
    The Church of Our Lady of Gorica, one of the oldest Marian shrines in Croatia, may be reached either via the Educational Trail, or by driving along a tarmacked road, or else by climbing a 237-step staircase. The church was built in 1415 and is renowned for its bell, which dates to 1594 and traditionally tolls when the bishop of Krk visits the Baška valley.
