CAVTAT is a small town on the most southern
part of the Croatian Adriatic coast. It has
developed from the ancient Epidaurus on the
slopes of two peninsulas: Rat and Sustjepan.
It owes its development to the geographical
position in the southern Dalmatia with the
fertile valley of Konavle in its hinterland.
It is from that valley that the town was

The monuments from the time of early
Christianity are the Mithra's sanctuaries.
They are dating from the beginning of the
era, and are representing the struggle
between good and evil in the image of god
Mithra, all represented in relief. The
downfall of the Western Roman Empire and the
invasion of Avars and Slavs caused the fall
of Epidaurus as a seat of a diocese and its
destruction. The legend says that the
refugees from Epidaurus fled to the
protected settlement of Laus - Lave - Ragusa
from which originates Dubrovnik.
For centuries Cavtat was connected to
Dubrovnik by administration, trade and the
freedom - loving spirit of the Dubrovnik
Republic. It was a port where people from
Konavle had their administrative and
juridical control, where they traded, and
where the masterminds like Baltazar Bogiić,
Vlaho Bukovac, and Frano Supilo were born.
