Travel to Korcula Island

Floating west of the Croatian peninsula, with dazzling views of the pristine Adriatic , the towering coastal mountains and the Skoji Islands, Korcula enjoys an enviable location. Its natural environment is equally beautiful. Spanning just 65 kilometers (41 miles) at its widest point, the slender island is surrounded by verdant pine-filled forests, fertile vineyards, and verdant shrubs.

Korcula is the "owner" of an enviable mild Mediterranean climate and has a coastline dotted with pebbly beaches, bays and very attractive coves. One of the best beaches is in Przna Bay, near Lumbarda. Don’t leave without taking a good bath. Architecturally speaking, the island bears the unmistakable stamp of the Venetian Republic, especially in Korcula Town , which dominated local life for eight centuries.

The island is usually visited by tourists between 30-55 years old, Europeans, attracted by a calm rhythm of life and historical architecture. The coldest month of the year is January with a temperature of about 9 ° C, and the warmest month is July with a temperature of 26 ° C. The best time to visit is between May and October, when the weather is warm and the days are long and sunny.

In the city, you will find a nice collection of traditional houses, centuries-old churches, cobbled streets and thick stone walls that surround everything. At the heart of this historic sanctuary is the Cathedral of San Marcos, which dazzles all its visitors with its impressive mix of Gothic and Renaissance architecture.
