Overview
Important InfoInfo
Pricing
Cavtat's past, present and future are very closely tied to Dubrovnik's and this historically rich area is a delight. Its Old Town is a warren of narrow streets and cobbled alleys and its serpentine waterfront promenade that frames a picturesque harbor is simply charming.

After visiting Cavtat, you will continue into the beautiful interior of the area known as the Konavle. Framed by the southern mountains of Herzegovina and Montenegro, its small population lives in some 32 picturesque villages scattered across this south-easterly tip of Croatia.

Your tour will continue in one of hidden village where we will have chance to get unique chance to see how story of Silk starts. Sericulture in Konavle is a centuries old craft, one of the most important aspects of tradition, beauty and cultural heritage of this region. Silk production in Konavle has successfully resisted the challenges of the global industrialism in the 18th and 19th centuries, and has revived nowadays as a family tradition in several households in this area.

We invite you to visit and take part in this ancient craft of producing the silk threads in the most traditional manner, from a cocoon to silk.

Konavle, the cradle of sericulture. Sericulture, identity and cultural heritage of Konavle: What makes Konavle so intriguing is how its folk traditions and way of life have remained so intact. And today we get a rare opportunity to experience its signature culinary dish in an authentic village konoba deep in the hillside - the finest lamb slowly roasted under a thick iron pan covered in hot coals. Yours to savor with a glass of delicious local wine!
