CULTURE BASKA KRK

Baska is rich at cultural objects of interest: from old buildings up to sacral cultural monuments. Each step between the stone houses of Baska, which can tell their centuries long stories, is an experience for itself. On the cemetery hill, near the former parish church St. John you can find remainders of the medieval settlement, which was burned-down in 14th Century by the Venetians. Some beautiful hiking routes start from here - you can get the detailed information at the local agencies. If you don't want to walk further on, you can just stand here or sit down for a while: the view from here above is really impressing!

EXCURSIONS TRIP GOALS ON THE ISLAND KRK

 

During your stay in Baska you can visit also the neighbouring localities (Krk, Vrbnik, and Punat). If you rather like to explore the neighbouring islands during your vacation, we recommend the numerously offered daily boat routes. With the car you can reach the following localities within a distance of 20 km:


Krk - principal town of the island Krk


The principal town of the island, surrounded by forests, lies in a beautiful bay on the wind-protected western side of the island. The calm island life characterizes the port during the day and in the restaurants, bars and Cafs at the promenade develop their brisk art of life. The objects of interest of the city Krk:

  • The most important object of interest of Krk is the cathedral, originally a Roman Basilica from the 6th Century. The today's three-aisle cathedral from the 12th Century with the bell tower from the 16.-18th Century was rebuilt several times in its history.

  • Kamplin place: there is a Frankopan castle, which served for the defence of the city in the Middle Ages as well as the Frankopan court, which was in use since the 12th Century. In 13th and 14th Century the Frankopans were one of the most powerful aristocratic families in Croatia.

  • Small town-gate, which was mentioned already in 1398, the only gate that leads directly to the city harbour.

In the summer months many artists and ensembles appear as guests in the city. To the tradition belong the celebration of the St. Quirinius, the summer festival of Krk, as well as the fair of Krk (at the beginning of August). The most of events take place in the free or in the historical places: in the cathedral, in the atrium of the Franciscan monastery in Krk and Kosljun and in the castle of the family Frankopan.

 

Vrbnik - island Krk - Croatia


Visiting the old city of the Vrbnik is nearly a must for each guest of the island Krk. A medieval small town situated on a 48 meters high cliff, well known for the Croatian autochthonous white wine "Zlahtina". You should cost this traditional island wine. If you make an evening walk through by many, close lanes, visit some art studios and finally, let the evening ends in one of the cosy "Konobas" enjoying the wine, sheep cheese and seafood specialities. Between the numerous cultural monuments in Vrbnik the constitution "Vrbnicki statute" (1388) and the decorated mass book "Vrbnicki missal" from the year 1642 should be emphasized, both in the old-Croatian glagolitics letters.

Did you already know that ....

 - already in the year 1866 the "association for the adornment" of the city Krk has published the first picture postcard. This year is regarded as beginning of the tourism on the island Krk.

  - the tourism in Baska has started in the year 1904, when the "association for the adornment of the place" was created. Very soon after it the first hotel in Baska was established. Some years later many houses and villas were built, so that in the period between two world wars Baska was able to accommodate up to 4000 guests.

  - the impressive Krk bridge was in the year 1981 (at the time it was finished) the longest arch pre-stressed concrete bridge of the world?  Its clear span with a length of approx. 1.3 km has exceeded by 85 meters the largest clear span of a bridge in the world at that time -  the bridge in Sydney!

 - that already generations argue about the question, which island is larger, Cres or Krk.
