Written by  Apr 07, 2024

Over three hundred participants of the first Nordic Walking and Hiking Festival - Konavle 2024 took part in yesterday’s event organized as part of this year's Spring in Konavle.

Visitors were greeted in Čilipi by members of the cultural and artistic society who performed traditional dances, toasted with the Konavle toast, and toured the display of a local museum. They were also welcomed by parish priest Don Josip Barišić and representatives of the municipal tourist board and the County, who are sponsors of this year's event.

After a rhythmic warm-up, participants divided into three groups and set off on hiking routes: "Napoleon's Road" from Ljuta to Pridvorje, "From Shade to Shade" through Čilipi, and "Heart of Konavle" through Pridvorje and Lovorno. Each route had a guide who introduced participants to landmarks.

"The organization was top-notch, the whole program these three days in Konavle and Dubrovnik was of a high standard, and we will definitely return next year. In even greater numbers," said Zvonimir Lepoglavec, president of the "Sport for All" Association from Goričan, which, along with the Croatian Nordic Walking Association and the Konavle Agritourism Association, organized the event.
