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.

Theme Day February 2008 'What your city is known for?'

This is a salty well, make a wish!

I actually didn't know that about Tuzla! It reminds me of my neighbor to the north, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Salt is a good thing to be known for. Salt used to be used for money. A nice treatment of the well tower.

I had seen from a previous visit that your city produces salt. Is this extracted from water drawn from the wells?

We have a number of salt pans in our city where the water is evaporated to extract salt from the sea

Forgive me! I didn't get around much on Theme Day but I still want to visit and send my regards. Great choice, esp since salt is so important for our diet. Sometimes very good; other times pretty bad!
