What is Blago

Blago means Treasure and let me show you why they call these parts Blago, Is it Because it is full of amazing natural treasures which are only waiting to be discovered?.

From underground fresh water rivers that flow into the sea to create the most beautiful water. The ominous and spectacular Velebit mountains and Paklenica National Park in the constant foreground. To Shipwrecks around the inumerous islands and endless archaeological finds, Or is it the abundance of fresh organic food and organic methods perfected for millennia be it world famous cheese, wine and oil production where in the not too distant distance olive trees are over 1500 years old?,

This ancient place has been Peoples Treasure for thousands of years. The catch phrase “The Mediterranean as it was” has never been so true and is just waiting to be
discovered.

Why the logo of the lamb

Blago means “Treasure” in Croatian and when you join us for your perfect Mediterranean escape, I’ll show you why they call these parts blago.

It could be because the region is full of incredible natural treasures just waiting to be discovered. From underground fresh-water rivers that sparkle into the sea creating a shimmering slick of blue-green bliss to the iconic Velebit mountains in which nestles the famous Paklenica National Park, from shipwrecks to emerald islands, there’s a picture postcard everywhere you look.

Or, the name blago could be in honour of the abundance of fresh, organic food nurtured using the techniques perfected over millennia; world famous cheese from the island of Pag, wine and olive oil from nearby trees, some as much as 1500 years.

Is it any wonder this place has been its people’s Treasure throughout its long, rich history.

This region is “The Mediterranean as it was”. Come and see for yourself.

WE Got You Covered

WHY THE LAMB

In this region lamb is also called blago (treasure). The lamb gives the gift of milk, cheese and meat or, if
left to grow, gives more lamb! Truly the gift that keeps on giving. Lamb in this region is a delicacy, eaten
on special occasions and at feasts.
I thought it fitting that the Lamb should be honored.
