The resort town of Baška on the Croatian island of Krk had a record tourist year in 2017.
From 1 January – 1 November 2017 171,655 tourists visited Baška, which is known for its old town, churches, and beaches like central Vela Plaža.
This year there were 5.49% more tourists than in the same period last year, whilst overnight stays, just under 1 million, were up 4.68%.
Baška has celebrated the record-year by releasing a new promo video.
“This season has shown that Baška’s image as a beach destination has developed into something more, a destination that offers fun and activities for everyone. With the stunning scenery, the beach and the beautiful sea, this year Baška Tourist Board also organised a number of events like the traditional Fish Day and Baška International Guitar (BIG) Festival. We continued Acoustic Summer Nights, exhibitions of acclaimed artists in Zvonimir Gallery, and we started Local Food Evenings, a manifestation aimed at presenting a local gastronomic offer,” the Tourist Board said, before adding.
“Through the formation of popular events such as the Baška Outdoor Festival, the 4 Islands MTB Stage Race, the Black Sheep and others, they have provided great interest for visitors to Baška outside the main summer season, thus ensuring Baška a tourist season to be remembered.”
