Ston, Croatia is famous for it many miles of ancient defensive stone walls built around it. These walls extend over high rolling hills to the neighboring town of Mali Ston. Seeing them rise up and over peak after peak into the distance makes them seem like a a less extensive version of the Great Wall of China. The tops of these wide walls can be walked their many miles like the medieval soldiers did in the distant past. This page has photos of Ston's defensive walls, the city streets, and its salt works. The photos of Ston, Croatia on this page can be viewed in the Slideshow below. See a compilation of European castle photos here.
