Album: Baska, Region: Kvarner-Gulf
Istria's proximity and close economic links with Italy have given the coastal cities a strong Italian flavor. Virtually all Kin,ins speak Italian fluently and you'll notice more Italian than Croatian specialties on local menus. If you come in July and August, the streets will be thronged with Italian visitors who are the mainstay of the Istrian tourist industry. Baska is a small town on the south-eastern coast of the island of Krk. Fertile tracts of land in the Baska Draga valley, through which runs the Suha Ricina or Vela Rika, have enabled farming, fishing, viniculture, as well as making and selling of wine, which in turn, has given rise to maritime and shipbuilding industries. The Kvarner Riviera is located next to Istria and is center on the main Croatian port of Rijeka, the busiest port on the Adriatic.
