Ston on the map


The Oldest Active Salt-works in the World

Ston is a Medieval little town whose history reaches back as far as the 14th century. It is a small town with the longest stone wall in Europe (5,5 km),with narrow quiet streets, noble ancient houses and traces of ancient cultures. Its former value as a „salt city“ gets confirmed even today in the plants of the oldest active salt-works in the world. These saltworks have remained faithfull to the tradition and to the natural way of salt production which has not changed since ancient times. The gulf of Mali Ston with places Mali Ston, Hodilje, Luka, Duba has a clean and natural environment. It has been well-known for its mussel and oysters-growing farm since Roman times, and the oysters from Ston (ostrea edulis), as an acknowledged natural aphrodisiac has made this region world-famous.
