Indulgence and fun
The Dalmatian coast has a very long history of mariculture. Traces of primitive oyster farming-petrified oak branches with attached oyster shells-were noted by Roman chroniclers. The first written documents date from the time of the Dubrovnik Republic. Records from the 17th Century provide details on the collection and sale of oysters.
When you are in Ston or its surroundings, it is an imperative to go to at least one of many first class restaurants that have traditional specialties on offer.
