Discover beautiful Dubrovačko primorje countryside and Slano perfect destination for those that would like to explore south Dalmatia.
Dubrovacko Primorje is the area located westward from Dubrovnik. On the 50 km long and narrow area there are located more smaller attractive settlements:Trsteno,Brsečine,Majkovi,Slano,Visocani
There are located the old summer residences that have been used by the old noblemen from Dubrvonik as the relaxation places from the rush city life.
One of the most famous summer residence is the one in Trsteno – from the family Gozze and their arboretum, which is the one of the oldest Renaissance parks on our coast.The summer residence of the family Soderini and from the family Ohmucevic in Slano are also the pearls of our coast. This area also hides the beautiful bays which are very suitable for the peaceful vacation.
Slano, a small town located between Trsteno and the Pelješac peninsula, is among the most beautiful jewels in the crown of the Dubrovnik Riviera. Set back 2 kilometres from the open blue waters of the Adriatic in a bay of the same name, Slano offers protection from the elements for wayward sailors, while the numerous tree-lined pristine beaches are ideal for landlubbers.
The strategic importance of Slano is firmly entrenched in history, as the site has been continuously inhabited since prehistoric times. Ancient Greek and Roman ruins dot the heavily forested hills and centuries-old olive groves of the picturesque bay. The Dubrovnik Republic annexed Slano in the 14th century and shortly thereafter it became the seat of the Republic’s Rector and a summer retreat for the wealthy and influential citizens of the powerful city-state. The Franciscan church of St. Jerome, overlooking the bay, is one of the finest examples of 15th century ecclesiastical architecture in Dalmatia. If we take our cues from the great civilizations which have called the bay home since ancient times, Slano enjoys not only some of the most breathtaking sites in Dalmatia, but is also a perfect place for a sightseeing getaway.
