Štrada

Location: Soline, N 45 09.016, E 14 35.971

Intended for the swimmers in the summer and promenaders during the rest of the year in more recent times, it was, until the second half of the 20th century, a place full of barrels in which the locals cooked salt day and night. They would later trade it for flour, sugar, and similar across the territory of Slavonia, Zagorje, etc. While strolling along the štrada (waterfront) in Meline near Soline, try to picture in your mind a roof tile factory in that landscape. It really existed there in the 19th century! The workers from the factory would spend their short breaks during the scorching months on the štrada.
