Valun is a small fishing village located in Valun Bay, not far from the town of Cres. True connoisseurs have known about it for a long time, but many tourists have only recently discovered it. Valun is known for its peaceful and pleasant environment.
In the summer time, it is almost impossible to find a free parking space on the steep roads in front of the entrance to the settlement, and the small restaurants and inns in the idyllic harbor are mostly fully occupied. Valun is known for its excellent gastronomic offer, especially for its fish specialties. Next to the parking lot, visitors are greeted by an interesting board with an inscription that welcomes them and at the same time introduces them to the ten commandments that apply in the city. Despite the large influx of visitors, Valun has managed to preserve its original atmosphere. Many ships and boats anchor in the harbor in the evening, which offers a wonderful view. The Zdovice campsite is located in the immediate vicinity of Valuna. Valun is known for the location of the Valun plaque, which is one of the oldest Glagolitic monuments in Croatia and is older than the Baska plaque. The plaque originates from the 11th century, it is written in Latin and Glagolitic.
It is part of a tombstone that was found in the city cemetery in the church of St. Mark. Today it can be seen embedded in the wall of the sacristy in the church of St. Mary in Valun, which stands near the coast.
