Zaostrog (Croatian pronunciation: [zâostroːg]) is a tourist town and harbour along the Adriatic Sea in southern Dalmatia, Croatia. It is located between Makarska and Ploče. It consists of two parts, an older part below a steep limestone section of the Biokovo mountain range, and a newer coastal zone. Olive growing is prominent in the area. Dominating the village for more than five centuries is the old Franciscan monastery of St. Mary, which has an open museum, ethnological collection, gallery and a large library with over 30,000 titles, a significant part of the older Croatian literature. Brother Andrija Kačić Miošić, known as "The Old Man Milovan", spent part of his creative life in Zaostrog. He is one of the most prominent Croatian folk poets. Zaostrog was called "Ostrog" in the Middle Ages and was one of the larger towns of the Narentines. Wikipedia
