Kala o' konguli

Destination: 
Sutivan

Cobbled (pebble) streets are a symbol of all small Dalmatian towns.

Kongule or kogule are stone pebbles shaped by the sea, and they were selected and stacked by special techniques in order to pave the streets that still amaze with their beauty.

Narrow cobbled streets are a cultural heritage, they represent the past and the tradition of the island Brač and the whole of Dalmatia. By cherishing this tradition we give honour and respect to our ancestors and their difficult and demanding life on the island.

Amazing facts about Kala o' konguli

What are cobblestones?

Cobblestones are streets paved with small, natural stones with edges smoothed by water or sea. The stones are usually bound together with mortar. They have been around for centuries.

History of cobblestones

Cobblestones date back to ancient times, with many pre-Roman cobbled streets dating back to the 3rd and 4th centuries. They’ve been used worldwide throughout history, mainly in Europe but also in Latin America.

Cobbled streets are back

There are very few streets left on Brač that are paved with cobblestones. Most of it was taken out and replaced with other materials, but in recent years there has been a trend of restoration, so we can say cobbled streets are back.
