From the bird's eye view the city of Korcula, with its ancient enclosed old town on the island of the same name, is swathed in the mystery and enchantment of its rich and historic past. The oldest Croatian lettered monument, a Greek tablet of the fourth century B.C., was found on the island, and, according to a 15 th century document, the famous explorer Marco Polo (1254 – 1324) came from here.
Korcula, the historic centre of the island, situated on an outstandingly beautiful part of the Peljesac Channel, stands out because of its many cultural monuments and historical buildings, as well as because of its rich tradition in seafaring, shipbuilding and masonry.
Also tourism has a long tradition on the island, the first modern hotel being opened in 1912 (in a building dating from 1871), and for decades now holidaymakers on the hotel patio have enjoyed the sunsets particularly in early summer, when they are especially spectacular.
The holiday offers include all classes of accommodation from hotels and apartments to caravan parks. The sport and leisure programme is excellent, including as it does water sport, organised trips or excursions as well as cultural and popular entertainment. Particularly worthy of mention are the sable dances Moreska and Kumpanija. Your palate can enjoy not only many fish specialities but also the local wines such as Posip, Rukatac, Grk and Plavac.
