According to data from the Society of Friends of Dubrovnik Antiquities for the Ston Walls, the fortress of Veliki Kaštio and other attractions in Ston and Mali Ston have seen a significant increase in visitors from the beginning of the year until the end of August. With a total of 51,657 visitors who purchased tickets, the number has risen by almost 15,000 compared to the same period last year.
Interestingly, there were fewer visitors this August compared to the same month last year, with a recorded 14,718 visits, which is about 2,000 less. This decrease can be attributed to the exceptionally high temperatures that marked that month.
Since the beginning of September, the Ston Walls have been visited by over 400 visitors daily, mostly day-trippers coming from Dubrovnik and neighbouring areas to visit Ston and Mali Ston. Ticket prices remain unchanged, and from September 16th, the walls are open to visitors from 8 AM to 6 PM.
