The Dubrovnik Times Sinke

Did you know that Croatian Town of Ston has been producing salt for the last 2000 years?  The practice existed even in times of old Roman Emperors, and the quality of salty products has never been anything but stellar. The small industry survived through cultural and historical shifts of all kind, never ceasing to deliver the white mineral to satisfied consumers.

But unlike many modern facilities, the Ston salt works comes with a unique feature. It tenders the old, manual way of harvesting the precious mineral. Workers use simple shovels to collect salt, which is extracted from the sea in special pools. It is then transported in wagons that are not motor-propelled, and rely on worker strength as well.

This line of work is very physically demanding. However, spending a day in lovely outdoors and joining strengths with fellow workers is also quite fulfilling, which is why other companies sometimes stage teambuilding experiences in Ston saltworks. For a certain type of people, spending a day in this manufacturing process and becoming a part of salt harvest is a perfect way to empower relationships and build stamina.
