For some inexplicable reason, TripAdvisor does not list the Čilipi Folk Festival. Several reviewers mention this festival in the context of the Konavle Museum, which is included in the admission price for the festival. On Sunday mornings hundreds of people show up for the festival. Some may drift into the museum but most people don't bother - they are here for the music and dancing.
To tell the truth I wasn't expecting much from the festival. Some locals jigging about in fancy dress, accompanied by repetitive music played by a bunch of amateurs. It is much, much better than this. The musicians are very accomplished and it was interesting to see some odd instruments. The dancing was complex and intricate and obviously involved some amazing planning and many hours of practice. I really enjoyed the festival a lot.
As for the museum it was OK. Mostly it was dedicated to the historic silk industry and the most interesting bit to me was a bunch of live silkworms crawling about.
Also included in the admission was a welcome drink of a local fruit brandy, as well samples of other local products.
All in all, 7 Euros well spent.More
