This is your chance to discover the island of Pag, around an hour’s drive from Zadar. The isle's city, which goes by the same name, was founded in the 15th century by Dalmatian Renaissance architect, Jurac Damatinac. Today, it’s a perfectly preserved Medieval town packed with centuries-old landmarks. Be sure to check out the delis – the area is famous for its distinctive cheese, and the shelves are stacked with different varieties. The other speciality here is lace. Still handcrafted by the women of the island, it’s cherished by Croatians. Take a look at the Museum of Pag Lace, then head for a ‘konoba’ to try the pungent Pag cheese and some smoked ham, washed down with local wine.
