NIN AND PAG TOURS
ALL-DAY EXCURSION TO NIN AND PAG
On a small island in the middle of a shallow lagoon the small town of Nin can be found with its old centre, connected to the mainland by two stone bridges. Nature and Man have made this small town very pleasant for a holiday, interesting because of the rich historical field, as well as excellent for health (well known for its medicinal mud which reliably cures many illnesses).Nin is the oldest Croatian royal town, the cradle of the Croatian state. The smallest cathedral in the world and the coronation Church of St. Nicholas can be found here, as well as one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Nin has a rich cultural treasure, unspoilt nature, as well as remarkably beautiful surroundings.
On this tour, you will visit the Museum of Salt where you will learn about a thousand year old tradition in producing salt. You will also be able to touch the big toe on the statue of Grgur Ninski which according to tradition – brings good luck. Many other historical and modern jewels are hidden around every corner of this once urban giant, now a peaceful flower of Croatia.
We will continue our journey to the city of Pag which is the most historically and culturally interesting place on the island of Pag. Other than the historical monuments, the city of Pag is also known for its cultural richness. The most famous is definitely the Pag lace – recently under the protection of UNESCO as Croatian non-material heritage. Local people have been famous for its salt production. For centuries salt production was the most important economic activity in Pag. This is evidenced by salt storehouses built back in the 16 century, where today stands the Museum of Salt.
Apart from producing salt (the Pag salt works are as old as the town itself) the inhabitants also raise sheep (the famous Pag cheese and lamb), make wine (paska zutica), and are involved in agriculture and fishing.
In the end of our visit we will take you on a cheese and wine tasting to boost your spirits and just relax and soak up the impressions from the day in a very pleasant and enjoyable atmosphere before returning back.
