Salt and saltworks have had a major influence on the development of Croatia’s economy throughout history, making the country one of the centers of salt trade of the region. The saltworks in Nin, Pag and Ston still produce salt in a traditional, natural and environmentally-friendly way, using the synergy of Adriatic Sea, Dalmatian sun and wind and the hard work of local people. No wonder then that the result is the relaxing and healing top-quality salt of a specific taste.
