There is more to Dubrovnik history besides the walls, sea and all the other things you read in your guidebooks. Why not see all that but from a completely different perspective?
Experiencing hidden and forgotten roads in cult Yugoslav Zastava cars together with a relaxed and spontaneous atmosphere is one of a kind experiences; experience where friendships and those warm, heart filling moments are made. Is there anything greater than looking back, thinking of these moments, and feeling your cheeks turn into a smile?
WHAT WE WILL DO?
Our Funky Wheels host will pick you up in town no matter where you are, and then we meet with the rest of Funky Wheels family.
May our adventure begin!
We are driving on Adriatic highway. We are listening to carefully chosen music. We are singing. All four windows are rolled down and wind is in our hair. Sea is on our left as we are approaching hidden countryside roads where nature of Dubrovnik coast is untouched.
Then Dundo (mister in Dubrovnik dialect) is welcoming us in his smokehouse on his charming estate where he prepared delicious gastronomic specialties just for us. Just feeding us is not enough for Dundo, so he is offering us homemade rakija and wine. We are thanking, hugging, and kissing our host on cheeks and heading to see Elafiti Islands from above.
Driving in Funky Wheels car is truly an adventure. However driving the car yourself is even more amazing. This is why a part of our tour is reserved for you as our driver – you ‘’Become a Funky driver!’’
After all this fun, it is time for us to get tiny bit serious and hear more about the recent history of this area. We are visiting Red History Museum. It is different and actually quite interesting.
WHERE WE WILL BE?
Driving in cult Yugoslav Zastava cars we will discover hidden and forgotten countryside roads of Dubrovačko primorje region where it seems like human hand has never even touched the nature. Knowing that Dubrovnik people are famous hosts, we will visit a local family Smokehouse located in a small picturesque village. The last hour of the tour is reserved for visiting Red History museum, so you can learn more about recent history of this area.
