In February 2016. we had our first long stay group from Japan to whom we organized a private classical concert in Bunic - Kaboga summer residence.
This February, Adriatic DMC hosted the first long stay group from Japan, especially for whom we organized an exclusive classical concert in the beautiful Bunic - Kaboga summer residence.
This winter we had the great pleasure to host the first long stay group from Japan in Dubrovnik ever. The guests arrived to Dubrovnik on February 2, and spent a total of twelve days in our wonderful city. It was our great pleasure to show them the best of Dubrovnik at a special time for the city, the festival of the patron of the city, St. Blaise. Aside of visiting the highlights of Dubrovnik and its surroundings, the group had the opportunity to experience an exclusive musical concert in the beautiful Bunic-Kaboga Mansion. This recently restored venue is one of Dubrovnik’s historic summer residences, the ideal ambient for a private classical music performance that Adriatic DMC organized specially for this group. Here is a testimony from one of our guests;
"In the afternoon, we departed the hotel for a short drive to the Bunic – Kaboga summer residence. The historic residence is beautifully restored. We were told that there were many regal residences in this area, and this is one of the rare restored examples. We strolled through a lush Mediterranean garden towards a terrace with breathtaking views of Rijeka Dubrovacka. We were welcomed by our host, Mr. Marojica Bijelic, who shared the history of the region, reasons for building these houses outside of Dubrovnik and interesting stories about the family who built this mansion in 16th century. We toured a small votive church nearby, that was typical for such houses of the nobility, and ended up in a wonderful hall, which serves as a performance hall due to great acoustics.
Upon entering the hall, each of us received a small repertoire booklet, including performers bios – Ivana Jelaca (piano), Andrea Dizdar (flute) and Nastasja Palcok (cello). These three young women, all graduates from the University of Zagreb Music Academy, showed all of their skill and love for classical music by performing compositions of local composer Luka Sorkocevic, as well as masterpieces by Joseph Haydn and W. A. Mozart. After the performance we mingled and enjoyed local sweets, fruit liqueurs, fresh orange juice, coffee and tea.
We are very happy to have had the opportunity to experience this performance. It gave everyone a special insight the local culture and history, and we will return home with great memories!“
