Čilipi folklore


The Konavle Valley with its thirty villages, well known for its beautiful landscape, elegant national costumes and embroideries, has carefully preserved its traditions and customs passed down through generations.

Traditional welcoming with dry figs and an herb brandy in Čilipi followed by a walk through this picturesque village with a typical rural architecture. At the Sunday Fair you will have opportunity to buy handmade souvenirs and embroideries or attend a Holy Mass at St. Nicholas Church, where countrymen come dressed in their national costumes. In front of the church you can enjoy the folklore performance of dances and folk music of the area. Visit to the Konavle Ethnographic Museum, arranged like a typical Konavle house with objects of daily use, jewellery and festive costumes of a bride and groom.

The highlight of the day will be a short trip down to the village where our host will present us the traditional stone mill and numerous ethno sites with interesting stories. You will also have the opportunity to buy homemade local products (brandy, wine, etc).
