Pag is a 60 km long island of North Dalmatia. On its rocky slopes one can find only few blades of aromatic herbs. Due to the lack of greenery characteristic for all the island of Croatian Adriatic, the landscape of Pag is often compared with the Moon surface. The island is inhabited from the Neolithic Era. It is special for its rich cultural inheritance.

The lacework of Pag is listed at UNESCO`s World Intangible Cultural Heritage Register. Women from Pag started knitting it in the 15th century. Pag cheese is known in the entire world as authentic Croatian product. Herds of lambs live on the rocky island slopes and eat aromatic herbs that grow from the karst cracks. Due to the Mediterranean herbs its meat has unique taste. It is especially delicious baked in the embers of fire under the peka bell dome. Besides the lace, salt is the other white gold of Pag island. It always had an important role in the lives of local residents. The production of salt on Pag lasts for more than 1000 years.
