Lim Bay

Lim Bay

Lim Bay is a bay on the west coast of Istria between Vrsar and Rovinj. It's part of Limska draga. It emerged as a riyas (flooded river mouth) of the Pazinčica River, which nowadays ponds in the Pazin dam near Pazin, and in the past it was poured into the sea in the Gulf of Lim. In its old watercourse it has penetrated the sea, so today's bay is created, so it is not a fjord as it is often mistakenly spoken (the fjord is a gulf created by the glaciers).

Lim Bay is a significant shellfish farm. His name comes from the Latin word limes = boundaries (in the Roman period the province of Italy and Dalmatia passed). The Lim channel has "starred" the Norwegian fjord for the purpose of filming the feature-length Vikings movie, featuring Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis and Ernest Borgnine. It was then built at the beginning of the drama for the needs of the Vikinko settlement.
