Paški sir - yellow-colored hard sheep's cheese


Pag cheese is a highly regarded hard sheep cheese of yellow colon and spicy taste, one of the most recognizable Croatian brands in the world. Due to the nutrition of Pag sheep on the rocky pastures that abound with aromatic and medicinal herbs and the salt brought by the bora wind from the Velebit Channel, Pag cheese is of distinctive taste and top quality.

Pag sheep is the original Croatian breed from the group of Mediterranean sheep, and sheep farming is the most important industry on the island, where about 220 tons of Pag cheese is produced annually.

For a genuine production experience of this centuries-old tradition, visit local shops and tasting rooms, or arrange a tour of the cheese dairy near the city.
