Stunning panoramic overview of Dubrovnik from the hill Srdj is always a terrific way to start a memorable journey. The hill stands as a natural protector of the town, especially from the north wind. The Imperial fortress was very important for the surveillance and defense of the region. Now it is transformed into a War museum exhibiting the war in Croatia on the nineties. You can cherish this spectacular panorama for about 45 minutes.

If you add a glass of supreme wine of Peljesac to this well-knownaphrodisiac, you will certainly taste traditional products of the upmost quality. A kilometer drive from Mali Ston leads you to Ston – a treasury of culture with the largest active saltworks as yet another curiosity to check.
Passing Bosnia & Herzegovina – Why?
Interesting fact is that the next stop with great Turkish coffee would be in Bosnia, in a town named Neum.The reason why this part of the Adriatic belongs to Bosnia, and why it splits the Croatian coastline in two, goes back to 1699. Republic of Ragusa (Dubrovacka Respublika) was separated from the Dalmatian possessions of its rival Venice by two buffer zones ceded by Ragusa to the Ottoman empire to prevent the possibility of Venice invading via land. Today, Croatia is building a Peljesac bridge that is connecting Dubrovnik and Split without any borders.
City of Split
