The history of Soline is tied closely with the Benedictine order which was active for six hundred years from its abbey on St Mary's island located within the Big lake.
Connection to the open sea was through the Soline channel, its extremities being marked by a stone cross at the seaward end and from the inner side by the now derelict Stone bridge (Veliki Most) and mill that was powered by the force of the tide.
Soline's name is derived from salt (sol) which was collected here by the Benedictines and still by the locals today.
Village of Soline was founded in 1825 by the family of Petar Srsen. From that time onwards locals were living of fishing and agriculture and most recently from tourism.
Throughout the centuries its inhabitants have lived in harmony with nature and Soline continues to attract visitors from all over the world.
