As we drive through the picturesque countryside and beautiful villages on our way to Konavle, a guide will explain all the information about Croatia and Dubrovnik, past and present, as well as many legends connected with this amazing part of the world.
First stop is by the river, discovering a complex of water mills used to produce flour and compact fabric. Lovely hosts in national costumes will show you how these ancient mills work and explain how 500 years ago families in Konavle made their livelihood, and you will have the chance to try some of their homemade sweets and liquors.
Our next stop is a visit to a local gallery where you will have the opportunity to see some of the remarkable work made by a famous local artist. The crown of our visit to the gallery is an exhibit of live silk worms used to create traditional Konavle costumes. From the tiny eggs to cocoons the worms are being carefully taken care of by artist herself, in this wonderful place. She has succeeded in returning this amazing tradition back into the Konavle homes and schools, just as it used to be in the old days before modernisation, in the times when each young girl in Konavle region spent years carefully taking care of these small creatures vital for the producing of the embroidery that will not only beautify them but also serve as a major part of their identity.
Before ending this eventful day you will have a chance to visit this pitoresque little town and have a coffee along the lovely palmed-lined sea promenade, in a bay encircled by two peninsulas that make Cavtat a safe harbour frequentely visited by numerous sailors and yacht enthusiasts. Cavtat is a gentle oasis bellow the steep hills of Konavle, once an ancient Roman town, today one of the most beautiful small settlements along the Adriatic coast. A perfect ending to a perfect tour.
