Shortly afterwards, the first hotel, Hotel Tomislav was opened (1906), as well as the first public beach (1908). In 1911, the Czech E. Geistlich built a modern hotel, Hotel Baska, in which he accommodated Czech tourists. Between the two world wars numerous houses and villas were built, enabling Baska to accommodate more than 4,000 visitors. A tourist board was founded in 1953.
