Baška is known as the site where one of the oldest and most significant Croatian Glagolitic inscriptions (and one of the most important symbols of Croatian history and culture), created around 1100, was found - the Baška tablet (Jurandvor). As a dedication to the Glagolitic alphabet, which became a trademark of our town, Baška'a Glagolitic Trail was created.
Interpretive walks will be led by Petar Tomašić, a licensed tourist guide, and will be held according to the following schedule:

Each Glagolitic letter has its own name, and the first nine say how good it is to live on earth. The well-being of the people, beauty and rich symbolism were the guiding thoughts of the wise Constantine the Philosopher as he shaped a new letter.
During the walk, we discover Glagolitic letters scattered throughout Baška, get to know their origin and come to hidden meanings. The richness of form and meaning makes the Glagolitic alphabet an ideal element of contemporary visual identity. Participants of the walk will have the opportunity to take the first steps in developing their own visual identity using the Glagolitic alphabet!
