Baska Glagolitic alphabet trail
The Baška Tablet is one of the most valuable Croatian monuments. It is the oldest historical record (from 1105 AD) written in the Croatian language, carved in stone in Croatian Glagolitic script. This ancient monument is also the first document of the Croatian statehood.
This unique historical document inspired the creation of the Glagolitic trail. It was a historical deed of donation in which the Croatian king Zvonimir, donated the land of Jurandvor to the Order of Saint Benedict from St. Lucy’s Abbey.
