The Glagolitc alphabet was created by the stylisation of Greek cursive around the middle of the 9th century. Saint Cyril is mainly mentioned as the author of the Glagolitic alphabet who used this alphabet for his translation of ecclesiastical books into the ancient Slavic language. The Glagolitic alphabet appears in two variants: rounded and squared. Supposedly these characteristics were developed later. The oldest Croatian monument written in Glagolitic alphabet, the Baška tablet, is partly written in the round variant, but the specific Croatian variant of the Glagolitic alphabet is the squared variant.
Visit the Biserujka cave. The existence of this cave has been known, at Rudin or above the Slivanjska bay, for over a hundred years when its interior (with its former entrance being in the shape of a grotto!) was hidden and it has aroused interest for its unrevealed secrets and the beauty of its calcite decorations. From the time that the story about a smuggler's hidden treasure was created, to the first entrances of interested visitors, its paths have been readjusted and people can now move more freely.
