Cilipi - Matinée Forlklorique: Let us greet you with a traditional warm welcome (grappa and figs) as you step into the village of Cilipi. Located in the picturesque Konavle region of Croatia this is your opportunity to experience an authentic slice of village life.
The Konavle valley is a place of great scenic beauty located at the southernmost tip of Croatia. It nestles in the foothills of the Snijeznica Mountain and its many quaint little villages enjoy a quiet, traditional lifestyle. Cilipi is no exception and on this tour you can experience a way of life that has changed little for hundreds of years.
We head off to Cilipi on Sunday morning to make the most of the local market and folklore show that takes place in the main square after mass. Set with silk embroidery, handicrafts and souvenirs, the market is a great place to buy gifts for friends. Take in the atmosphere as the church bells call out mass and the locals assemble dressed in their Sunday best. Have a look at the local crafts, visit the museum or simply listen to the enchanting Dalmatian songs sung by a local choir.
Then, cameras at the ready, prepare yourself for the superb folk show. Dressed in dark skirts and trousers with crisp white starched shirts, red belts embroidered in gold silk, bright red leather shoes and matching red caps, locals perform songs and dances form the village and the region. If after all of this you feel inspired to dance yourself then don’t miss the chance to be whirled around in the waltz at the end.
