Island of Pag

Island of Pag An island of fascinating “moon” surface with the most indented coastline on the Adriatic Sea.

An island of fascinating “moon” surface with the most indented coastline on the Adriatic Sea. There are numerous sandy and gravel beaches among the kilometres long dry stone walls, old olive groves and the omnipresent fragrance of sage. The symbol of the island is the famous cheese from Pag acknowledged as one of the best in the world, lamb meat and lace, salt and white wine žutica. The town of Pag is a typical medieval town built according to the project of the Dalmatian genius architect Juraj Dalmatinac (George the Dalmatian). Among the stone and rock that glitters from north to south you will find fortifications and churches, archaeological ruins thousands of years old , from the old sunken Cisa to the abandoned old Pag. The biggest salt pan that determined the lives of the locals for years   appears in a picturesque panorama. The refined costume of Pag and numerous traditions, unusual wetland landscape of Velo blato near Povljanja and Kolansko blato, in the heart of a rocky island, songs and unsurpassed gastronomy belong to the traditional reasons of touristic attraction of the island.  Noisy youthful entertainment in the north of the island in Zrće Cove and the famous Pag Festival have given the island European recognition in this type of entertainment.
