Baska Voda Travel Guide
Baska Voda Local History
A settlement with antique Byzantine roots and discoveries dating back to the 2nd and 4th centuries, this erstwhile fishing village is now a popular tourist destination. Ancient peoples must have enjoyed the pristine beaches and grandeur of nearby Biokovo Mountain as much as the tourist of today.
Baska Voda Attractions
St. Nicholas parish church - gaze at stained-glass windows by Josip Botteri-Dini and the paintings of the Way of the Cross by Josip Biffel .
Gradina plateau - Byzantine fortification relics have been found here- perhaps you will make the next discovery?
Promajna and Bratus - strech your legs and explore these interesting and quaint hamlets, an easy walk away
Restaurant Putnik - best food in town! In Baska Voda, the main street only seems to offer tourist food, which all comes served with french fries, which get old, quickly. I found Restaurant Putnik up one street on Nauptica - romantic atmosphere with vines growing as roof, friendly service and much better food! Its' classier, expensive facade probably scares many off, but the price of food isn't much higher than the norm! They offer both a variety of meats and fishes, the soups are delightful. The only downside is that it shares the same problem as all Dalmatian food, too much salt. But definitely the best Baska Voda has to offer gourmet-wise!
