Magical Brela by @alan.grubelic
The original name of the rock symbol of Brela, the natural landscape phenomena and the recognizable brand of the Croatian tourism, is Šakan.
Due to ignoring the early history of the town in tourist trends, today it is popularly called Kamen Brela (Rock of Brela), while in the historical period, till the beginning of the 20th century, solely the name Šakan was used.
The name itself originated and was used due to the fact that it was the natural habitat of the Mediterranean monk seal, monachus monachus, today an almost extinct species on the red list of IUCN, popularly called by various mythical names like Šakan.
In addition to this locality, it dwelled on the locality Soline-Loznica as well, which is witnessed by the name Medvidina, a small beach embedded deep in a natural cave, the ideal place for relaxing after abundant fish meals in the rich and preserved underwater landscapes of Brela.
