Vrbnik is a fount of Glagolitic script, a "World champion" in number of Glagolitic monuments, a place where Glagolitism was always nurtured...
"A script discovers a bit of Eternal Light in man,it is a heavenly order and a language of ideas,reading of heaven and discoverng of symbols."
That symbol is "soaked" with teological and archetypal meanings and it is also a stave for Glagolitic letters which inscribed name of Vrbnik into the lightest and holliest chapters of Glagolitism.
Some other wheels brought You to Vrbnik and Vrbnik's Wheel takes You to the journey through space and time but also round and around through a labyrinth of Vrbnik's narrow streets,where every little house and gutter are letters by which we read the town.
