    What to Expect
    Smiley Konavle countryside tour will show you the southernmost places in Croatia. First on our way is city Cavtat witch is located on the Adriatic Sea coast 15 km south of Dubrovnik and is the centre of the Konavle municipality. The original city was founded by the Greeks in the 6th century BC under the name of Epidaurus. The surrounding area was inhabited by the Illyrians, who called the city Zaptal. In Cavtat you will have about 2 hours of free time. After Cavtat we will visit the private winery Brajkovic, where a welcome aperitif and tasting of 4 types of wine and olive oil are waiting for you. Home made Dalmatian prosciutto, smoked bacon, smoked sausages and cheese are included in price.  Fort Sokol Grad found itself under Dubrovnik rule in 1420 and was immediately submitted to further construction – rebuilding of certain parts, strengthening of others, arming and general maintenance. This fort survived unscathed the big earthquake of 1667. It is not mentioned in the 1672 archives as a military complex and it was probably abandoned around that time. As was customary in the region, the locals used the stones of the fort to build their homes and smaller walls, so Fort Sokol was heavily deconstructed. The ruins of the fort have been placed under state protection and are maintained in their present condition. After Cavtat we will visit Konavle valley.

    We will make a stop at Konavoski Dvori to see old mills that were turning raw produce into exportable goods for over 500 years. We will visit the source of Konavle's natural irrigation system, the River Ljuta, which is Croatian for “Angry”. We will look up at the tallest peak in southern Croatia, Sniježnica, which comes from the Croatian word for “snow”. We will even see a medieval watchtower from 1391 named “Sokol” after the Croatian word for “hawk”. Each of these natural and man-made landmarks were important in writing the history of Konavle, but they are equally important in keeping cultural traditions alive. For the end of tour we will visit small fishing village Molunat with beautiful sandy beach where you can take a swim.
