After breakfast, enjoy the morning at leisure to explore the beautiful city of Dubrovnik.
The county of Konvale lies south of Dubrovnik, approaching the modern day border with Montenegro. Between rolling coutnryisde, we can get a glimpse of what life used to be like in the Croatian countryside. This afternoon we head out on our final, leisurely excursion to discover some of the history, heritage and crafts of this region.
The first stop is Cilipi to visit the Konavle County Museum, which present the women and men’s national dress of Konavle from various periods, textile handcrafts such as jewellery, musical instruments, artistic paintings, photographs and various items. Besides the ethnographic collection, the Konavle Heritage Museum also exhibits artefacts of the Cavtat Embroidery Association, whose collection has exceptional value with embroidery specimens from Croatia and neighbouring countries, something for which the area is famous.
Afterwards, we head to village of Poljice and Glavic House, an original house some 400 years old and. Registered as cultural monument on the national heritage list, 150 years ago up to 36 members of the family lived in this rural complex. The agricultural traditions of the property continue today and upon arrival, we’ll enjoy a presentation of olive oil making including a welcome drink, tasting and local snacks.
Our final stop in Konvale County is to visit Mlinica Ðivanovici (the Old Mill). In the shade of the Ljuta River, in Ðivanovic we find a unique spot in spectacular scenery. During a short walking tour you will visit the ancient mills, built during the time of the famous Dubrovnik Republic, which are still in use today. You can see the production of flour and the stamping-mill where the cloth for the local folk costumes was made. The unspoiled nature and the crystal clear water of the Ljuta River will make your memory long-lasting.
Afterwards, we return back to Dubrovnik for our final meal together to round off our fantastic Croatian adventure.
