    by Kamen_mali Written Aug 24, 2002

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Island of Pag – Certain parts of the island resemble the surface of the Moon. The famous lace from Pag is comparable to that of Brussels, because of its beauty and a special way of weaving. The cheese made on the island is a delicacy known worldwide. Sheep’s milk, olive oil and special technology combine to make the product a gourmet speciality.
    The small town of Pag was founded in the 15th century, probably according to a plan by the master builder and sculptor Juraj Dalmatinac. “Knezev dvor” (the Count’s palace), the unfinished bishop’s palance and a church in which Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance styles are blended together, belong to that time.
    Others will be attracted by the beauty of another small town on the island – Novalja, or by the picturesque Lun, famous for its ancient olive groves and nearby beautiful beaches.

    by Kamen_mali Written Aug 24, 2002

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Telascica Nature Park - Telascica, a natural extension of Kornati National Park, is an 8,200 meter-long bay to the south of Dugi otok, which is the subject of many myths and legends. Since it is one of the safest and one of the most beautiful Adriatic ports, it has become a favorite destination of many yachtsmen. The bay encompasses 25 little bays, 5 islets, a 68 kilometer-long coastline and the natural phenomenon known as Slano Lake, which is saltier than the Adriatic. Its impressive cliffs, sometimes rising as high as 150 meters above the sea (Grpascak is the highest cliff in the Adriatic), represent a protective barrier between the bay and the open sea. Telascica’s flora and fauna are very abundant, and the park is famous for its large number of mouflons.

    Island of Iz - Between Pasman and Dugi Otok, lies the Island of Iz, famous equally for what it has and what it doesn't. It has rich Mediterranean vegetation and no cars. It also hosts the well known Iz Festival where famous dances seem to appeal to both young and old.
