Ston Salt Festival
The Salt Festival is one of the most attractive events in Dalmatia and a great introduction to the most beautiful part of summer, when the crowds on Pelješac beaches subside and the sea is ideal for swimming.
From August 30 to September 15, the people of Pelješac and their guests will once again enjoy local specialties and widely known wines at festival prices.
About forty restaurants, konobas, wineries, family farms and shellfish farmers on the peninsula are involved this year with two festival menus created at good prices , while wineries offer some wine labels at a discount of up to 20 percent off.
The centre of the festival is in Ston, known for the longest fortified walls after the Great Wall of China, the finest oysters and the Ston salt pan, which in the 14th century had an exceptional strategic and economic significance for the Republic of Dubrovnik, and today is one of the biggest tourist attractions on the Adriatic, where the method of production is not changed all seven centuries.
Tours of the salt pan and harvesting of salt flowers are organised as part of the Salt Festival, which has a rich program this year as well. In Ston, photography and art exhibitions, Art Park workshops for children, concerts, great entertainment and superb food and wine experiences await visitors, and from August 31 to September 3 the traditional EKO PLACA with eco producers from all over Croatia.
