Ston is one of the hidden gems in Europe considering its historic legacy. It is a little isolated, on the Peljesac Peninsula which is situated 60 km away from the nearest large city, Dubrovnik. The walls are much longer than those of its more famous neighbor Dubrovnik at 5 km in length, making them the longest defensive structure in Europe; they are sometimes referred to as the ‘European Walls of China”.
Built in the 14th and 15th centuries as an additional defense for the Republic of Ragusa (Dubrovnik) and to protect the lucrative salt pans in the area, the walls also consist of three fortresses – Veliki Kastil (in Ston), Korula (Mali Ston) and Prodzvizd Fort – and a number of towers. The walls once stretched for as long as 7km, but parts were destroyed following the fall of the Republic of Ragusa, 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 a number of years ago to visitors. The walls of Ston were built in 1333 when Ston became a part of the Republic of Dubrovnik.
