A few facts about Ston
Ston is located at the south of isthmus of the Pelješac peninsula. Located at the gates of the peninsula, surrounded by the Adriatic sea on three side and protected by four hills, rich in fresh water and saltwater, fertile plains, it has been an important political, cultural and ecclesiastical centre. In 1333, Dubrovnik started with the planned construction of the fortresses of Ston (VelikiSton) and Little Ston (Mali Ston) at the present site. The cladding between the two towns along their entire length were made of large walls that were supposed to defend the Dubrovnik estate - Pelješac. This entire fortification complex, which is unique to Europe, was built over a short period of time. The monumental stone fortification complex of Ston suddenly collapsed in preparation for the official visit by Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph. They were again damaged in the Homeland War (1991-1992), followed by the devastating earthquake of 1996. The walls were of great importance because they were defending the saltworks that gave 15,900 ducats every year to the Dubrovnik Republic, the shellfish farm and the city itself. What to visit while in Ston Ston is a small town, but has many restaurants that offer excuisite Mediterranean cuisine. The town has a city museum that exhibits many items from the towns’ long and rich history. In the saltworks you can buy fresh salt of excellent quality at a reasonable price. From Ston to the wonderful Prapratno beach there is only a short drive and the locals are more than helpful in providing information as to how to get there. Ston is an excellent base for making small excursion to nearby town and beaches on the Pelješac peninsula.

The city is most famous for its Diocletian’s Palace, the old city centre. There you can see the St Duje’s Cathedral on the Peristil, which was at first a mausoleum for emperor Diocletian. The church is combination of ancient Roman architecture and early Christian architecture. From its bell tower, you’ll have a great view of the whole city and the Diocletian’s Palace. Opposite the cathedral, you’ll find the old Jupiter’s Temple, now St Johns church, in front of which stands an original Egyptian sphinx, the other being on the Peristil, both of which emperor Diocletian brought here from Egypt. The Peristil itself, the heart of the Palace, is an excellent example of old Roman architecture, around which later Medieval and Christian structures were constructed. Many cultural events take place on the Peristil during the Split Summer Festival, where plays and operas are performed under the night sky. The Riva is the main city promenade along the seashore, where the bulk of the cafés are located and where people like to stroll and meet with friends in the evenings.
