Dubašnica is the historical term for this area, named after a settlement with same name, which is considerably older than Malinska. The area of Dubašnica is the only part of the island of Krk that didn`t have a town`s centre and castle centre. It was evidenced that this area along with the area of Poljice was first inhabited in the 15th c, at the time of migration of the Croats from the mainland.
Dubašnica declines economically at the period of Venetian dominance over the island, and its population decreases. Once this region was rich in forests as well as pasture lands, and less in plough-lands. In the past times the inhabitants employed mostly in agriculture, fishing trade and maritime affairs, as well as firewood trade and shipping industry, and in recent times tourism and catering trade.
Since the area of Dubašnica was inhabited considerably late, its cultural historical heritage is much humbler than that of other parts of Krk, which have been inhabited since the prehistoric times.
