Sit back, relax and soak up the scenery as a scenic drive takes you to the island of Pag.This well-preserved medieval town is adorned with beautifully-carved door posts on the entrances to the noblemen’s houses and yards. The heart of the town features the Church of the Assumption and it is easy to imagine how this has remained a bustling centre throughout the years. Join your knowledgeable guide on a leisurely walk to unveil the local sights.

Pag Island is best known for producing unique lace products and therefore a visit to the Lace Museum is a must. As you stroll around the museum, you’ll learn about the history of the ancient art of lacework and see examples of the intricate lace, which is still being produced using the traditional processes in the Old Town of Pag.

After some free time to explore the Old Town further, your tour continues to the village of Kolan where you’ll visit a local cheese factory. Since ancient times Kolan has been the agricultural centre of the island of Pag with an emphasis on sheep breeding and the production of the award-winning Pag cheese, or ‘Paski sir’.

During your visit, you’ll have the opportunity to sample some Pag cheese, accompanied by a glass of wine. As the characteristically piquant flavour of the cheese unfolds, it will be easy for you to imagine why this particular cheese complements many traditional fish and meat dishes.You’ll also discover that it goes down particularly well with a glass of wine!
