FESTIVAL This is Why Everyone Went to Mali Ston

Author(s): Olja Ljubišić
Saint Joseph's Day, 19 March, is celebrated with traditional tasting of local specialties. 

Oyster and Peljesac wine brunch is the reason why hundreds of people gather in Mali Ston. Music, dancing and traditional costumes make the perfect background to the festival.

The Bay of Mali Ston, located 33 miles from Dubrovnik, is the home of the finest European Flat Oysters.

The locals say they are best eaten directly from the sea. No ice, no lemon juice, no bread. Just oysters.
