Island of Korcula
Korcula is one of the largest and most alluring of Croatia’s islands, with untainted beaches and coves, lush upland valleys and abundant vineyards.
Founded by the Greeks well over 2000 years ago this medieval island town and port has plenty of variety to give visitors – pleasant walks, water sport facilities and many bars and sea food restaurants where you can also taste the local wine, Grk. It is often called the “Dubrovnik of the islands” and is believed to be the place where the great explorer Marco Polo was born.
