1. See Santa in summertime
The patron saint of Baška Voda is Saint Nicholas, the inspiration for modern-day Santa Claus. Usually, we only catch sight of the generous, long-bearded fellow in the cold months, but in Baška Voda you can see him all year round. Climb the stairs to his neo-Romanesque church, built in 1889. Right at the centre of town, the church’s colourful stained-glass windows were installed in the late 1980s. Modern paintings of the 'Stations of the Cross' were added a year later and can be found inside. The impressive statue of Saint Nicholas, by the waterside in the town centre, blesses all who visit and depart from Baška Voda, including the town's sailors, its fishermen and you.
