Cavtat’s past, present, and future are very closely tied to Dubrovnik, and this historically rich area is a delight – its Old Town is full of narrow streets and cobbled alleys, and its serpentine waterfront promenade that frames a picturesque harbor is simply charming. After visiting Cavtat, we continue into the beautiful interior of the area known as the Konavle. Framed by the southern mountains of Herzegovina and Montenegro, its small population lives in some 32 picturesque villages scattered across this south-eastern part of Croatia.
