The church of St. Vid dates from the 9th century, and it is located in one of the furthest peaks on Tivat side of Vrmac, whose terraces offers a fantastic view of Tivat Bay, Luštica Peninsula and the slopes of the Vrmac itself. Concert in the late afternoon, flute- Bruna Matijevic, violin- Nevila Klakor, harmonics- Goran Sevaljevic, works by Mozart, Piazzolla, Debussy, the sunset that warms and the wind of god Aeolus, who, as per orders, quelled the north wind bura, made the atmosphere was complete . As usual, faithful friends from Squirrels have adjusted their Sunday walking tour on Vrmac to finish by arriving at the “Music at the top of the hill” and shared autumn afternoon with those who came to St. Vid in their own arrangement or got organized transport from Tivat.
And they all wondered what is to come. Under the “Landscape Days” there is one more event planned for this fall – gastronomic event in Gornja Lastva (Antonela Stjep?evi?, MNE PR of the project).
