Like 1000 years ago, salt from Staraya Russa is obtained by the process of evaporating water from the unique mineral springs in Staraya Russa. It was the beginning of salt production that caused the birth of Staraya Russa in X - XI centuries. In the XVI century, according to foreigners, "the best salt was obtained in Staraya Russa, where there were a lot of saltworks", and salt production was called the «Russian craft» in the Novgorod annals. In the Middle Ages salt was expensive, and only noble guests were served with it during solemn feasts, while others left «empty-handed».
