Travel Guide to Cavtat, Croatia

In this city even stones are impregnated with the spirit of history. There is no wonder for that as Cavtat, after all, has been famous since antique times as Epidaurus, an ancient Greek colony. Even nowadays tourists can see a part of the aqueduct that connects the ancient Epidaurus with the village named Vodovadia that has been supplying the city with water. Starting from 1426 the city has become a part of Dubrovnik Republic. Today you still can see the buildings of those times that perfectly combine the Renaissance style with the elements of Gothic architecture. First of all, we should mention the monastic complex and Kostel Р. Marie Sněžné and Church of St. Nicholas, which is used to exhibit the works of Vlaho Buhovac. The collection of works is also assembled in the memorial house of the artist. Of course, we cannot fail to ignore the unique collection of art gathered by Balthazar Bogisic. The collection includes 22,000 rare books, a collection of graphics, ancient coins and weapons, a precious archive and numerous ethnographic materials.
