Slano is a village in southern Croatia with a small harbor in the bay of the same name. It is located 27 km northwest of Dubrovnik.

Slano was already settled in antiquity and during the early Christianity period. However, Slano was especially influenced by the Republic of Ragusa from the end of the 14th century onward. During this period the Franciscan monastery, Church of St. Jerome, summer house Ohmučević, Prince’s palace as well as other sacral and private buildings were built. Slano is today a tourist destination with beautiful beaches along the entire bay as well as the hotels Adriatic and Osmine. It has been able to preserve the peace and atmosphere of the Dubrovnik Riviera.
