Ston highlights

Ston was a major fort of the Ragusan Republic whose defensive walls were regarded as a notable feat of medieval architecture. The town's inner wall measures 890 metres in length, while the Great Wall outside the town has a circumference of 5 km. The walls extend to Mali Ston ("Little Ston"), a smaller town on the northern side of the Pelješac isthmus and the end of the Bay of Mali Ston, notable for its mariculture.

Ston description

Ston, located in Peljesac Peninsula, can easily be reached from Dubrovnik. It is by and large known for three things: 1) its very well preserved town walls. The town walls are much longer than those of its more famous neighbor Dubrovnik at 5km in length, making them the longest defensive structure in Europe; they are sometimes referred to as the "European Walls of China". 2) its salt works. The saltworks were established as far back as the 13th century (although the harvesting of salt in the area is thought to go back much further). The production of salt contributed to the wealth of the Republic of Dubrovnik. These days, the harvesting of salt from the sea is still done in a traditional manner. 3) its mussels and oysters. Mali Ston is about a kilometer and a half away on the upper side of the Peninsula. You can easily walk between the two places. Mali Ston Bay is where you will find the oyster beds that produce what are commonly referred to as some of the most delicious in the world. You must consider dining at a local restaurant to try out some of these famed mussels and oysters, right from where they are farmed. This town was built in the 14th and 15th centuries as a additional defense for Dubrovnik and to protect the lucrative salt pans in the area. Besides the walls, there are three fortresses (Veliki Kastil, Korula and Prodzvizd Fort; and a number of towers. The walls once extended for as long as 7km, but sadly parts were destroyed around 1808, and during the 19th century when the stone was used to construct other structures. The walls have long since been protected and, following extensive renovations were open to visitors.
