Opening of Solana Ulcinj Information Centre, Montenegro

The new exhibition in the Solana Ulcinj offers local people and tourists information on the salt production and the importance of the 1.500 ha large wetland area for bird migration over the Adriatic Sea. The value of Solana Ulcinj is far beyond the production of salt, although the working places are important and the quality of the natural produced salt is high. Solana Ulcinj is a key site for waterbirds in bottleneck time during breeding, passage and wintering for the entire Bojana-Buna Delta and the Central European Flyway before and after crossing the Adriatic Sea. It is globally important for more than 15 waterbirds species of waders, herons, gulls and ducks, including the Dalmatian Pelican.
