The area of Baska is located in the southeastern part of the island of Krk. Like all the other villages on the island, the old town center of Baska has narrow streets and houses next to each other, which is typical for the Mediterranean.
Baska is famous for the Baska Plate, which represents the national cultural monument of the Croatian nation. The plaque is a Glagolitic inscription, a carved document in thirteen lines, which tells about the gift deed of the Croatian king Zvonimir to the church of St. Lucia in Jurandvor. Baska is also recognizable by one of the most beautiful and largest pebbly beaches on the Adriatic, which has the shape of a semicircle and is 1,800 meters long. Vela Beach is located in the center of Baska and is surrounded by many bars, hotels, restaurants, pizzerias, bars, and private accommodations. The development of tourism in Baska dates back to 1908 precisely at the expense of Vela Beach, when the first swimming pool on the island of Krk was officially opened. On the beach, visitors can rent umbrellas, sunbeds, pedal boats, windsurfing boards and other beach accessories for a pleasant vacation. Baska was already inhabited in the prehistoric period. In written sources, Kastel Baska was first mentioned in 1232. It became an independent municipality in 1994. The place has many cultural attractions, from palaces to old buildings to sacral monuments. The city offers many opportunities for activities such as diving, cycling, walking and climbing. There are three sports climbing areas in Baska, which have more than 100 equipped routes of all levels of difficulty.
For fans of hiking and walking tours, Baska has 19 marked tourist trails, which total around 80 kilometers. Among the routes, they are easy, but also demanding and difficult, so everyone can choose the one that suits them best.
