History on a grain of salt project – renovation of Ston Town Walls

The Ston Tourist Board announced the renovation project of its medieval town walls, worth just under 8 million Euros with eighty-five percent of the project’s cost coming from grants.

Contracts for ‘History on a grain of salt‘ project were signed yesterday in the coastal town of Ston near Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Part of this project will also include restoration of several towers/ fortresses that are currently in need of the renovation.

Five kilometres long Ston’s town walls consist of forty towers and five fortresses are the longest medieval walls in Europe and second largest in the world.

Located an hour drive from Dubrovnik, Ston is a lovely little coastal town known for its medieval walls and oyster farming from beds in the Mali Ston Bay that have been used since Roman times.
