Hubert Scharnagl (Austria):
The fortress walls of Ston are sometimes called the "Great Wall of Europe", which is clearly an exaggeration. The wall is about 5 km long and connects ston with Mali Ston on the other side of the hill. It is fun to walk on the wall, from the highest point you have a beautiful view over the salt pans and the bay of Mali Ston. However, I don't think that the site has sufficient outstanding value to get an inscription.
To be honest, we made our detour to Mali Ston not because of the cultural sights but rather for culinary reasons. Because of submarine freshwater springs, the bay is only slightly salty, the water is very clean and almost across the entire bay are maricultures of oysters and mussels. The oysters are smaller than those from the Atlantic, but taste very good. In Mali Ston there are three restaurants offering oysters from the local farms.
