Locals and tourists were singing together with the Dalmatian a capella band Klapa Šufit from Split.

People throughout Dalmatia know about the beautiful sound of Klapa Šufit  - especially those who were lucky enough to attend the Fishermen's party in Lučica Bay, on August 3rd. Beautiful songs, good vine and numerous local specialties, everything free and spiced with warm hospitality of people living in Lučica were the ingredients of a great party.

If you were on the island of Lastovo during August 2009, you probably heard that ‘Bill Gates tried to escape from a restaurant without paying (not even a few bucks for tip), and the hills around Portorus (Skrivena Luka) were covered in people in black’. That story spread like wild-fire, so we checked what really happened. 

Bill Gates, one of the wealthiest men on earth, was cruising around the Adriatic during the summer of 2009. Everywhere he came it attracted a lot of media attention – except on the beautiful island of Lastovo.
