On the September 28th, Adriatic DMC has organized an exclusive event for the guests of Windstar Cruises in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
This fall we have had the pleasure to put together an exclusive experience for the guests of Windstar Cruise while in Dubrovnik. MS Wind Surf arrived in Dubrovnik the morning of September 28th and their guests enjoyed getting to know the UNESCO site, the Old Town Dubrovnik on their own or by joining one of our guided tours. Afternoon hours were reserved for the exclusive event we prepared for them. Here is a testimony of one of the guides that attended the event;
“Around 4 PM, we gathered on the pier in Dubrovnik Old Town port and strolled through the Old Town to the nearby Ploce Gate. They had busses waiting for us here, to take us to the location of the event, the Park Orsula. The park has a unique location in Dubrovnik, overlooking the Old Town with some amazing views of the Adriatic Sea. Upon arrival, our hosts greeted us with a welcome drink, a traditional Croatian sweet wine called Prosek and fresh orange juice. There was an abundance of local delicacies to taste, such as: seafood, smoked ham, cheese, sausages, fish patte, fresh fruits, local cookies and deserts, appetizers…
We mingled, enjoyed the amazing panoramas, and were entertained by a local group of singers called "klapa", who sang traditional a capella songs, After the cocktail hour, we set in an open amphitheater and enjoyed an exclusive folklore performance by the Lindo ensemble. The Linđo program included a total of 5 dances from all over the Croatia including: Valpovo, Baranja, Bunjevac, Međimurje and Linđo dances. In addition to dances, Linđo boasted great singing skills with the performances of songs for the audience during the breaks between the dances. They performed a total of 4 songs showing the rich musical and cultural heritage of the region.
The whole experience has been enriched by the narration of the local guide wearing a national costume who followed the performances with comments an interesting facts about the folklore traditions in Croatia and the Balkans. After the performance we were offered a farewell drink on our way back to the buses and to the port for cruise ship embarkation.”
