The White gold of the Adriatic

The Dalmatian coast is a land of salt, water, cheese, and lace, a region ideal for the true experience of adventure, of pristine nature, and of a heritage and culture going back thousand years. Embark on this unique journey and meet salt pickers that will tell you the incredible story of how a drop forms crystals. Visit the Museum of Salt in Nin and taste floral salt enriched with valuable magnesium and calcium. The area around the Nin salt basin is ornithologically very diverse and throughout the years offers shelter to many migratory bird species on their journeys. Saltworks with shallow basins are inhabited by various species, some of which are endangered. On the island of Pag, besides the saltworks, visit the ornithological reserve at Velo blato, a habitat with over 160 bird species, and the must see mussel breeding farm in Ston. After visiting the saltworks, each time you reach for this white gold, an important addition to any good dish, you will be reminded of your Croatian adventure.
