The Baška area in the southeast of the island is exceptional in some of its features. When we climb up the hill from Puntara draga and at about 330 m we cross the slopes of Treskavac, with the highest peaks of the island (Obzova, about 570 m) and quite suddenly and suddenly we find ourselves in front of the Bašća basin, we are taken aback, almost out of breath. Because we were not prepared for such a play of nature, the combination of mountains and sea. Baška is also known for one of the largest and most beautiful pebble beaches on the Adriatic, more than 1,800 meters long in a semicircle. The naturally fine sand allows non-swimmers and children to enjoy the beach, as the depth of the sea gradually increases.

Right here, around the year 1100, the baptismal certificate of the Croats was created – the Bašćanska ploča. In 1851, the young Baška priest Petar Dorčić discovered in the floor of the early Romanesque church of St. Lucius in Jurandvor near Baška, a large stone tablet inscribed with verb characters. The text written on the board interested the scientists of the time. It became an important source of information about the development of the Croatian Glagolitic script, the Croatian language and culture. He confirmed the existence of the Croatian state from the earliest days, mentions the name of the Croatian king Zvonimir and marks the northern borders of his kingdom on the island of Krk.
