Ston

Once the centre of the trade empire of the Republic of Ragusa, Ston is today the perfect holiday destination for families. The 980-metre-long walls and fortifications that surround it make Ston the town with the longest walls in Europe. Due to its historical, economic and defensive importance, Ston was built in two parts during the era of the Republic of Ragusa, which is why it is today divided into Mali Ston and Veliki Ston. Come, relax and experience your own Dalmatian adventure!
