Antient amphorae

Famous amphorae

ferry port Žigljen. In this place with amphorae in cages are preserved vessels from the 2000s; the fate of the ship that carried them is not known, but in the Velebit Channel the usual culprit is a sharp northern bora. The place is covered with various organisms. The unique decoration of the island of Pag – Pag lace – has been recognized in the sea lace. Today, amphorae abound in life and are home to broiler eels, scorpions, octopuses, sponges. Other sights include an iron anchor, an original amphora cover and a piece of ground stone of the ship's mill.

The bays on the island of Pag are ideal for enjoying the summer months, and one of them also carries the legend of a sunken city, compared to Atlantis. On the seabed in the bay of Caska lay
the remains of the entire city, and today's place has only a few houses. This extraordinary place on the island of Pag attracts history lovers and explorers as they want to discover the past of the ancient Caska that sank.
