One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things. – Henry Miller
Love to learn about the tradition of the place you are visiting? This is the day for you!
Čilipi is a village mostly known for the Dubrovnik airport, however it certainly has a lot more to offer. This area is all about showcasing countryside, the backbone of the history of Dubrovnik with its intricate and unique cultural heritage. This tour operates only on Sundays and provides you with a peek into the lives of people from the countryside and its typical rural architecture.
Konavle Ethnographic Museum offers a walk through the households of Konavle with all the objects of daily use, silk production and embroidery traditions, the jewellery the area is known for, with costumes of the groom and the bride hanging from the closet. You'll get to walk around this household made to be a museum with your guide for the day, who will be more than happy to explain in more detail everything you'll be lookin at.
We're coming to the highlight of this day - traditional folklore dancing performance. Other than impressive dance moves and harmonies, you will get to admire the folklore costumes up close. These areas are known for quite simple, but very beautiful designs. Each outfit carries a special meaning, providing non/verbal communication for each family in the past.
When this magical preformance finishes, meet your driver who will then take you to the old mill where you will try homemade food prepared in a particular way in the this region for centuries. Now, it's your turn to try meat under the bell pared with local wine and all that while sitting just a few centimeters above the river Ljuta in Konavle.
What do you say on Sunday morning spent watching folklore dance and having a traditional lunch? A true gem we highly recommend to every wanderlust soul out there!
