The Island of Korcula is the sixth-largest Adriatic island, stretching nearly 47 km in length basking in a Mediterranean climate. A haven of timeless beauty with quiet coves and small sandy beaches scattered on the southern coast of the island; as well as a densely wooded wonderland rich in vineyards, olive groves and small villages; this slice of paradise is sure to cast its’ spell.
Korčula is a historic fortified town on the protected east coast of the island of Korčula. Arranged in a herringbone pattern, the streets surrounded by walls, allow free circulation of air but protect against strong winds. The town’s historic sites include the central Gothic and Renaissance Cathedral of St. Mark, the Town Hall and the massive city fortifications. The 15th-century Franciscan monastery with a beautiful cloister is situated on the islet of Badija, near Korčula Town.
Tradition is still a big part of everyday life on Korčula; so take the opportunity to witness age-old religious ceremonies, folk music and dances that are still regularly performed. Conclude each day marvelling at the breathtaking Adriatic sunset.
