Welcome to Korčula Google Map

Like a mini-Dubrovnik , Korcula town (pronounced kor-chula) is a walled town on Korcula Island near some delightful beaches. Korcula Town offers one of Croatia's most romantic views and has become a top sight for cruise lines on their way to or from Dubrovnik. After visiting Korcula town , take a look at the rest of lush Korcula Island or take an excursion to Mljet. Beach buffs can easily hop a ferry to Orebic across the Peljeski Channel and stretch out on a wide , sandy beach or explore nearby Badija Island with its Franciscan monastery.

Most of Korcula Town was built in the 15th century when local men were renowned throughout the Adriatic for their stone-carving skills. Fortunately they left some of the best of their work on the distinctive facades of the town buildings.

Admiring the architecture of the old town is a big attraction of Korcula , particularly the striking arrangement of walls and towers. Notice the coats of arms adorning the southern land gate and the 15th-century Large Governor's Tower and Small Governor's Tower.

Local legend has it that Marco Polo was born in Korcula Town (don't argue with a local on this point) and his house makes an interesting visit.

The centre of town is dominated by the splendid St Mark's Cathedral. The Gothic-Renaissance style is superb and the interior features a Pietà by Ivan Mestrovic , Croatia's most famous sculptor.

The town museum is an interesting excursion into Korcula's history , particularly in its display of Korculan stonecarving and the Byzantine icons in the Icon Museum are worth a look.

At night , don't miss the famous Moreska Sword Dance , a colorful spectacle of clashing swords and intricately choreographed dance.
