od slavulje i smilja, pelina i bušina,

Bura, sheep, man, and the Island Pag. And here's a recipe for Pag Cheese, the most famous Croatian cheese.
The Bura - is a strong, cruel, unpredictable, dangerous and capricious northerly winter wind, only the strongest vegetation will survive its reach. Sultry aromatic plants like (Slavulja), Mint (Mentica), Lavender (Lavanda), Rockrose (Bušin), and Immortelle (Smilje) cling to the salted earth to escape its destruction.
Paska Ovca (Pag Sheep) – breeds have survived centuries grazing on the rocky pastures and feeding on the aromatic herbs of the Island. Adapted to survive the harsh winter conditions, Paska Ovca have become an autochthonous native breed and always, as is today, they roam freely on the rich pastures of Pag.
On the Island of Pag, only the strongest and most resilient will survive. Pag sheep and man have survived together over the ages, the sheep giving wool, leather, meat, and finally cheese which is the essence of the island. Rising before dawn in the winter Bura to milk the sheep, and building stone walls for their protection, it has never been easy on the Island of Pag...So who is the stronger, the Bura? The Island? The sheep or Man? Or a perfect fusion of unique conditions, which make Paski Sir the most distinctive cheese you will ever taste .
