When travelling to Bosnia and Herzegovina from Dubrovnik, one of the holiest places that lures lots of people during the whole year is a town called Međugorje. In the 1980s a couple of kids saw an apparition of the Virgin Mary on the top of the hill. The hill with the statue of Virgin Mary is considered sacred as there has been cases of miracles to this day; healed illnesses, cured deasses, etc. This Catholic pilgrimage town still attracts millions of visitors all over the world, get to see why with us!
We’ve covered this cave a couple of times up until now, however never explained why it’s truly a magical experience. Do you remember back in school when you were learning about all the animals, and then there was the ‘olm’? To refresh your memory; olm is cave-dwelling vertebrate, requires clean water, can survive without food for up to 10 years and can live for 58 years or more and is protected by national legislation. Besides the beauties of the cave it self which we’ll not talk a lot about as you have it all here – Vjetrenica, you get to see a real live olm. Do you dare?
3. Silk production in Konavle valley
By now, you all should know that we (people living in Croatia) are very proud of our tradition and are very happy to show and tell to anyone who wants to learn and listen. Back in the 15th century the first written record of silk production in Dubrovnik’s surrounding region of Konavle was made. People lived with it, from the day they were born up until the day they died and passed the art of producing silk to the next generation. It has a great value as folk dresses of the region was made by breeding silkworms and making silk – now a Croatian cultural heritage!
