Photographer's Note

Sveti Stefan is one of the most unique locations on the Adriatic Coast. The small island was once a fisherman willage, which preserved its traditional look, with narrow streets, old stone houses and small churches.

We had a stop here during our camping tour in 1983 which goes from Germany to Yugoslavia, and to the Peloponnes of Greece.

from www.sveti-stefan.net: "In ancient documents Sveti Stefan is mentioned by the name of place of justice - the pivotal place of Pastrovics township and tribe. This name originated from the fact that the court Benkada had been sessioning in it for 400 years. It was usually done at Pjaca, a space in front of the entering gate. Tribal disputes and misunderstandings were solved at that spot until 1929. Fortress Sveti Stefan achieved a grand rise in the first half of XIX century when it counted 100 houses, three churches, and 400 inhabitants on its small space limited by the sea and the walls. There was no space for more."
