On the Trail of Salt and Medicinal Mud

The saltworks of Nin and Pag are an inseparable part of history because they were immensely important for the economic aspect of the region, but they also created a specific cultural landscape of unique vistas. The Nin Saltworks also contain a Museum of Salt, as well as excellent products, but they also represents a specific artificially-created swamp which has become the habitat for a variety of rare animals, birds in particular. The Pag Saltworks have through the Middle Ages and onwards represented the most significant source of income for the nobility and all others who came to rule this region. The warehouses constructed for storing salt on Pag are also a cultural landmark. The view of the Renaissance town of Pag and the magnificently fragmented Pag Island with its saltworks will forever remain in your memory.
