Island of Korcula - Details : The island of Korcula has many little inlets with pebbled beaches that provide you with a warm and tranquil atmosphere. Korcula is one of the most wooded islands on the Adriatic. It is a typical Mediterranean area with various sorts of flora: cypress, pine, olive, oak, and myrtle. Indigenous herbs and aromatic plants also grow on the island: sage, rosemary, lavender, mint, marjoram etc. The old Roman version of the name Korcula was Corcyra Nigra, the ancient Greek version was Corcyra Melaina, both names refer to the dense pine-woods of the island. One French aphorism says that 'A day without wine is like a day without sunshine'. Sun and wine have always been connected in the history of Korcula. Due to the Mediterranean sunshine, Korcula and Peljesac wines have a specific quality and aroma. The ancient Greeks who founded their colony Corcyra Melaina not only established a commercial and cultural center but also planted vines which have since produced wines esteemed all over the world.
Old Korcula Town - Details: Korcula Old Town is a medieval walled city positioned on a oval-shaped swelling of land pointing deep into Peljesac Channel. The city itself is arranged with a succession of narrow streets branching off the spine of the main street like the bones of a fish. The town of Korcula is well known for Moreska – a traditional sword dance and drama that was common through out the Mediterranean in 12th and 13th century, reaching Korcula in 16th century from Italy and Dubrovnik. The golden period for Korcula was between the 13th and 15th centuries, when the old town's present form was acquired through the construction of important buildings; most of these can still be seen today. It was during this period that the Venetians left its distinctive mark on Korcula’s culture and architecture, which has been well preserved for future generations.
