The 6th edition of the Lavender Festival is organised in the village of Velo Grablje on 27 and 28 June.

Some 5 km from Brusje there is a village Velo Grablje, founded in the 14th century. Stone houses and courtyards still capture your attention with its fascinating architecture, while walking within its narrow streets you will feel the breath of pass times. Today the village is nearly abandoned having but a few permanent villagers, although it was rich and prosperous place, famous for its good wine, lavender and olive oil production. Honey production was well known as well, together with lavender oil being the leading one in Europe of the time.
