Konavle Embroidery

by Totsie3149

Where can I buy Konavle embroidery online, or where is there a company whose address I can have so I can order some of these items?

Re: Konavle Embroidery

by CyberCroat

I’m sure folks from Konavle Folklore Club in Cilipi know people making it.

Travel Tips for Cavtat

Cavtat bay

by KristaB

Cavtat is located on small peninsula, so there are beaches all around it. The one on the picture is tucked away behind many boats in city port, so I suspect the water there is not very clean. Take a walk by the sea around the peninsula and find that perfect spot. Pine trees are providing shade close to the water, so reading and falling asleep is very pleasant, with scents of trees and flowers floating on a sea-breeze.

Rector's Court

by Rusket

Right across the street from the statue of Bogišic is the renaissance Rector's Palace. Since 1958 it has been under the administration of HAZU ( The Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts). Bogišices library of between 15000 and 20000 books, his collection of letters, numismatics and graphics are stored there. So is the collection of the Society of Embroiders. One of two Mithras found in the Konavlje region is here; relief monuments of pre-christian beliefs representing the struggle between good and evil in form of a fight between a god and a bull, together with other stone fragments from the roman period.

Rector's Palace is currently (april 2006) closed for maintenance / reconstruction, but I managed to sneak photograph two pieces of archaelogical findings through the gate. I fear some of the items in the collections could be damaged or missing: During the war in the nineties the building was closed. Some items from the collections were stored in private homes, others stored in crates in the building itself. Insufficient airing resulted in moisture damages to floors and walls, and what then about paper and leatherwork?

Rector's Court is sometimes referred to as the Duke's Palace, and sometimes as Bogišices House. This adds to the confusion about Bogišic; I have seen him mentioned as Duke Bogišic ;-) But the Ragusa Republic was very roman in it's structure, thus Rektor in that time was an elected administrator, and not a duke. Also, I believe Bogišic never lived in the house: In a report to the Croatian Parliament about it's work, HAZU writes that the reconstruction work will take years, and will be extended to including Bogišices family home (http://www.sabor.hr/Download/2006/05/17/sazetak_izvjesca_o_radu_HAZU_Saboru_RH_za_2005._8.5.06.1.pdf)

The Old Town

by Shafali

Right above Cavtat's riviera, the Old Town, is ghostly quiet and welcoming at the same time. For us it was like discovering our own secret place! We love small streets and alleys, and the best part was seeing tiny, tiny churches like this scattered around.

Račiċ mausoleum

by JLBG

The cemetery stands on the hill that overhangs the city. On top, stands the monument of the Račiċ family, a wealthy family of Ċavtat's shipowners. It was built by the well-known Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestroviċ in 1921. We have not climbed to the cemetery (next time) but I have read that the work or Mestroviċ is full of symbolism and worth the visit.

My hometown - a small paradise

by editanyc

Cavtat or Epidaurum (as Greeks and Romans called it) is an ancient Mediterranean town and port situated on the southern coast of Croatia, 20km south of Dubrovnik. Its mild climate, Mediterranean vegetation, the smell of pine trees, blue crystal-clear water, hidden beaches, small uninhibited islands in the distance, delicious seafood, and quality local wine as well as herb brandy make me feel like I found paradise on Earth every time I go back to visit.
