The island of Daksa, Croatia was first inhabited in 1281 when a Franciscan monastery was built on it called Saint Sabina. The monks were the island's sole inhabitants and brought in spiritual leaders from all over Europe.

For over 500 years, Daksa was seen as a sacred and holy place. Until a mass execution in 1944 that left the island filled with unburied bodies for decades.

If anyone does ever wishes to visit Daksa Island today, good luck finding a boat to take you there. The spirits and curse that remain in the shade of the overgrown pines are always waiting for the next brave person to stay a while.
