To the festival in Dubrovnik
Vacationers near this beautiful city have the honor to take part in the largest international holiday called «Dubrovnik games». Full immersion in history takes place with direct participants and spectators, local residents or guests of the city.
Located in the heart of Dubrovniki, the Old Town with all its palaces, castles, towers and parks is becoming a single concert venue for representatives of different art trends. Opera and drama, ballet and folklore, theatrical performances taking place against the backdrop of ancient walls, present a breathtaking magical spectacle. Another highlight of this festival is the night serenades that excite the hearts of lovers and romantics..
This amazingly beautiful sight can be seen in the small village of Radosic, which is located near Split. Fights take place between bulls without the participation of matadors and bullfighters. The field of the future bullfight is fenced off with a simple picket fence, and therefore the public more than once had to flee from angry bulls, who swept away everything in their path. Not a single man refuses to tickle your nerves.
In addition, a strong half of humanity can test their strength in various competitions, among which the main ones are wrestling on a log, tug-of-war, throwing stones at a distance. The funniest competition is the donkey race. It is necessary, sitting on the back of this stubborn animal, without using a saddle and harness to overtake rivals.
