Bevk’s homestead in Zakojca
»There was not a lot of black bread, there was no talk about white, except twice a year. If a slice of it fall on the floor, we had to pick it up with respect and kiss it. After each baptism, the cakes rained into the house. According to old custom, they brought white bread from godmother, then from godfather, at last, came both married mother’s sisters with buskets, in which were, along with side cake for mother, also the loaves for each child. We thought that feast is coming right after next.« (Astonished eyes, France Bevk)

At the end of the year 2020, right on the 10th anniversary of the entry into the company of heritage events, the society was delighted with the special document, with which ZVKDS for the first time confirmed its participation at DEKD, thus speed up endeavors for the development of Literature-Cultural tourism in Baška grapa.
