Baška

The Baška area on the south-easterly end of the island is exceptional due to its many peculiarities. Climbing from Punat Bay, across the slopes of Treskavac to 330 meters above sea level (with the highest island peak Obzova rising to 570 meters) one suddenly comes across the valley of Baška. This walk is truly one worth taking because one is never prepared for such beauty that can be seen only where the mountains meet the sea.
Exactly here around 1100 AD Bašćanska ploča (Baška tablet), a kind of certificate of baptism of the Croats, was created.
Baška is known for one of the biggest and most beautiful beaches on the Adriatic coast stretching for 1800 m. This lovely shingly beach with sandy shallow water areas is ideal for non-swimmers and children. The old town’s narrow streets with houses built close to one another evoke its rich Mediterranean past.
In addition to its marvelous beach, Baška is interesting for unique architecture, cultural and historic monuments and the surrounding footpaths. Accommodation facilities include hotels, campsites and private houses.
The origins of tourism date back to the beginning of the twentieth century, when the Society for Town Embellishment was established in 1904. Two years later the first hotel was opened and in 1908 followed the construction of the first public beach. The Czechs were the first guests and they have remained loyal visitors ever since. These tourists came thanks to Prague newspaper Narodna politika (National Politics) director Emil Geistlich, who was a loyal visitor and spread the word about the beauty of this area. Today he has a monument built in his honor near the beach.

Sights and Attractions in Baška
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.
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.
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.
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 200m2 area, is home to 21 aquariums with a hundred species of fish and four hundred species of seashells and sea snails.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Biking
The network of cycling trails begins right after the Krk Bridge and may be followed all the way to Baška, where both road and mountain biking trails await visitors to show them some of the most beautiful views they will ever encounter in their lives. Cycling is a great way to release the stress of everyday life, and Baška provides the chance to pedal through some of the most beautiful landscapes ever.
Besides the 11 km-long trail from Zarok to Draga Bašćanska, which is suitable for beginners and families with children, there is a popular mountain bike route that leads to the "Moon Plateau". The reason behind its popularity becomes clear after some pedalling: despite the route's level of difficulty, there is a postcard view around every corner, as well as new vantage points from which to observe Baška's many sights. The Church of St. John constitutes an unmissable stop, and is a place many will undoubtedly visit repeatedly: indeed, the view available from there is nothing short of magic, both in the morning and in the late afternoon.
There is a rich selection of trails from which visitors may choose; regardless of which one they pick, it can be guaranteed that there will be a special moment and a stunning view that will make their hiking efforts worth their while.
The history and life of a town is best learnt by living the environment in which they had their inception to the full. The six-kilometer-long „Baška-Zarok-Batomalj-Pod Lipicau Educational Trail” provides the opportunity to do just that by means of a 2.5-hour walk through the Baška valley's unique landscape, history and tradition. Visitors are introduced to Baška's history and to the nature that have given it its present shape; other highlights include the unique Zarok sandstone, the Vela Rika watercourse, and Batomalj’s historical shrine of Our Lady of Gorica.
