Attention is also paid to listening to other participants in the group. The week’s work is mostly focused on training by the method School for Uncovering the Voice, as well as on singing monophonic and polyphonic songs.

Wines from Pelješac
It is simply impossible to visit the second largest Croatian peninsula without seeing Pelješac vineyards and giving your taste buds the satisfaction of tasting the top-quality wines. Scant soil and hard work of the industrious people of Pelješac have produced famous wines which have made Pelješac a well-known name in the whole world: “Dingač”, “Postup”, “Plavac” and “Pelješac”. Wines from Pelješac were enjoyed by the Illyrians, Greeks, Romans and Slavs. Emperor Franz Joseph, a wine connoisseur, has written in golden letters on his wine chart the Dalmatian wine from the Dingač area. The ex-president of the USA used to enjoy the black wine from this area. Join the connoisseurs from Pelješac.
The picturesque village of Mokalo is an ideal place for vacation. Besides the suites and camps, in Mokalo you will find a restaurant with Dalmatian specialties, a beach bar, a diving centre and a beautiful beach, a crystal-clear sea, a hundred-year-old pine tree forest, and cricket song. If you taste the local wine, this vacation will stay in your memory forever.
