Valun

Valun
Valun, a typical fishing village sheltered by the Bay of Pernat, and nestled by the Bay of Cres, is known far and away for the discovery of the famous Valun Plate. The plate was found in the small Church of St. Mark, which is in the village cemetery.

This exceptional document, extremely important for the history and culture of Croats in the region, dates from the IX. century, and can be admired today on the wall of the Parochial Church of St. Mary. The Valun Plate is known for its wellpreserved bi-lingual inscription, one in the Glagolic and the other in Latin text. Copies of other similar inscriptions are being kept in the lapidarium outside the "Juna" tavern. The area has been gained by the rearrangement of the old oil factory and the small nearby museum. This museum is a tribute to the industrious and hard-working nature of the locals. It can be argued that the peasant and naval traditions are intertwined here.

You can see plenty of fishing nets and fishing boats in the small harbour, while the fishermens' faces clearly show the strain of the struggle with the sea and winds. Accommodation is easy to find, either in private apartments or in the small, tidy camp-site, especially suited for all of those that like to spend their freee-time in close proximity to nature. There are also long strolls, lively evenings in the company of friends, boat excursions, and many other things that you can do in this tiny picturesque fishing village. However, Valun is first and foremost a town known for its gastronomic specialities, especilally shellfish and other seafood, prepared with expertise and great care, using only traditional recipes.
