About destination

This small settlement lies between rocky plains in the picturesque and fertile Baška valley.

It is 4 km from Baška's beach and in the midst of the tourist season it offers its guests peace and seclusion.

The 45th parallel passes through the village which places it exactly halfway between the Equator and the North Pole, almost in the center of Europe. Because of this, in terms of its geographical postion and temperatures, it is considered an ideal location in the Northern Hemisphere.

For hundreds of years, the inhabitants of this village have been engaged in agriculture and livestock raising. In the past, there were 7 water-mills in the area, thanks to the little river Vela Rika. Sheep-farming and the production of cheese developed, as well as wool processing and the weaver's trade. Some old trades were widespread at the time: the carpenter's, shoemaker's, tailor's, tin-smith's, mason's, builder's and similar.

Nowadays, besides agriculture and sheep-farming, the inhabitants earn a living from tourism.
