City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

Salty and nice

The upper side of Panonica. This photo was taken after 7pm and you can still see people swimming, mostly people come after work to have a swim.
Today is going to be very hot so imagine this lake full of people, mostly children, it's really fun to go there and spend few hours. This lake has salty water =)

Oooooooo, I love the colors in this shot....so cool and tranquil looking! And really? This is a salt water lake? Guess so, considering your city's description. Very interesting...and I love the round green-domed building I can see off in the distance...is that some kind of mosque?

I think I've asked you enough questions!

Thank you all for stopping by =)

Ame - Yes we have a salty lake in the middle of the city, great isn't it. Our city always had problems on that exact spot because of the ground collapsing and because of the salty water coming from underneath. So our dear major has decided to do something good with it in 2003. They made a lake with the latest technology to bring water in the lake and they also bought latest machines for filtering and cleaning lake twice a day.
Very popular, it brought lots of joy to the kids.
The green dome is a church.

Thanx for visiting my DP =)
