The Award was handed to 'Ragusavecchia's' members in the year of their fifteenth anniversary by the County's Prefect Mr. Nikola Dobroslavić on the merit of 'Ragusavecchia's' successful contribution to both within-the-country and international promotion of the County's cultural treasure and its status in 2012.
Klapa 'Ragusavecchia' was formed by a handful of Dalmatian folk-song enthusiasts in 1998. Being that they come from Cavtat, they named themselves after one of the historical names of the town.
'Ragusavecchia' established and together with the Konavle Tourist Board co-organizes one of the best Dalmatian klapa festivals in the country. 'Na me pogled tvoj obrati' is held in Cavtat on the first Saturday each September.
