Well-known Croatian summer resort Baška is thanks to its beautiful architecture considered one of the most wonderful holiday destinations in Croatia. It is located on the southeastern part of the island of Krk, in the vast bay of Baška. Goergous narrow streets, houses built tightly to each other, mountains rising up straight from the sea, or fresh sea air. This and many other things awaits you in Baška. Four kilometres long boardwalk lined with restaurants and pubs is perfect for evening walks, but the most appealing tourist attraction is the crystal clear sea and a long gravel beach.
