This evening in Korcula Andrea is decorating the old town just for you, every season will have its lightened decorated corner somewhere in the old town. As you are not present for all the festivities through the year she will be telling you about all of them but in a very interesting mystic ambience . All traditions that are celebrated through the year have their beginings in older times of history when people believed in several Gods and festivities where in a way more connected with nature . The storytelling will be intertwined with stories about the customs of christianity, slavic mythology and pagan festivals . She will walk through her hometown under the light of a lantern, bringing light to the dark streets and entering courtyards of palaces. Find out about annual celebrations, seasons and who rules them through croatian traditional tales. Why winter is so cold, why a rabbit lays eggs, why thorns and wild grass grow so well in the fields wherever they want and what grows at the end of a rainbow. Walk the mystic streets of Korcula and get the know the town in a dark but sparkling night.

A highly original and inventive tour! Andrea had constructed a number of little shrines or tableaux at various locations around Korcula, depicting folkloric aspects of the seasons from both pagan and Christian traditions. All were beautifully and lovingly presented, sprinkling a little bit of fairydust into our lives. Excellent storytelling and use of props proves you do not necessarily need one of the wonders of the world on your doorstep to create a compelling virtual experience. Korcula is, of course, attractive in its own right, but here it was not the star; the little art installations were. For me, it evoked a childhood experience in a playground that no longer exists, where the woods used to be lit up with fairylights on summer evenings. Pretty and magical.
