Lastovo island

A full-day excursion is to neighboring Lastovo island – July 12 (Saturday).  The trip includes bus travel across the length of Korčula island to the port of Vela Luka, two-hour travel by ship to Lastovo island where we will continue by bus to view historical features of this island that was under centuries of Dubrovnik administration until Napoleon’s takeover in the late 18th century; we are hosted to a mid-day meal with foods and beverages special to the island, a demonstration of Pokladarsko Kolo (sword dance), film viewing of Lastovo Poklad (carnival), and a visit to a winery. The two-hour ship travel will facilitate comfortable and relaxed Study Group meetings, and upon return to Hotel Marko Polo, dinner will be served. For orientation to the sword dancing on the island, see the sword dance website <http://macevni-plesovi.org/en/mjesta/lastovo-en/>.
