There is nothing like a sip of pošip wine in Korcula with the cerulean Adriatic lying at your feet.
No wonder it is referred to as “Little Dubrovnik” by the locals. With seafront walls and brick-colored roofs mounting up to the ornate tower of St. Mark’s Cathedral, Korcula is truly a miniature of Croatia’s medieval dreamland. It becomes the center of attention as the birthplace of Marco Polo time and again, but many visit it for the cloistered villages and quiet coves. 2 miles off Croatia, the island is perfect for a day trip as you sail the translucent waters of the Dalmatian.
Take a sip of the aromatic pošip wine, Croatia’s finest white, and pause for a moment to marvel at the primal pine forests. Korcula offers the ideal time for peace-seekers with its blissful old town. Its Gothic-Renaissance style squares have been a muse for several artists throughout the years. Among the most renowned Venetian monuments is the bell tower of St. Mark’s Cathedral and the city walls decorated with intricate Venetian sculptures. Everywhere you look, you will see the town’s ageless stonemasonry displayed on the walls.
With a splash of modern-day delicacies and shops tucked in the winding streets, Korcula town is a sight to behold. Make your way to one of the rooftop restaurants or the Zakerjan Tower at sunset and savor the dotted seascape.
