Views: The Ancient ‘Salt Pans’ Of Ston, Croatia

4,000 years ago, in the ancient city of Ston, vast stone walls over 7 kilometres long zigzagged across the hills to enclose a precious Croatian secret. Now, we know that the people of the town were protecting one of the Europe’s most spectacular natural wonders – 50 giant pans of fresh salt, hidden beneath the lagoons.

Once harvest time would arrive, the water would evaporate, leaving behind salt so valuable that the town would have to keep thieves at bay. Join this unique aerial tour of Croatia, where incredible drone photography reveals nature’s beauty and historic landmarks side-by-side.
