ZADAR AND NIN’S SURROUNDINGS - THE SECRET OF BORA

The Bora in Dalmatia is more than just a wind, it is the wind upon which many local products depend. One of the most famous products still traditionally produced is Dalmatian smoked ham. Without the strong Bora north wind this delicacy could not be produced. This traditional production, in particular the natural drying of  ham when the Bora wind blows, gives the ham its unique taste and the aroma of Dalmatian herbs.

A visit to Zadar and its surroundings is incomplete without seeing the traditional way of life. Our exciting journey takes you to Nin, where you can discover salt of the highest quality. Nin is a city with a glorious past. As a former Croatian Royal Town and one of the most important cultural centres of the early Croatian State, there are many unique monuments of early Croatian architecture in Nin, especially from the 8th and 9th centuries. Of special interest is the compact Holy Cross church from the 9th  century, which is also the smallest cathedral in the world.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Visit cultural and historical monuments
  • Taste local products in traditional places
  • Demonstration of salt production
