Abound with rustic charm, the medieval settlement of Korcula town has a year-round appeal. The palm-lined streets and ancient surrounding walls regularly invite comparisons with nearby Dubrovnik.
Žrnovska Banja is a small fisherman’s village, also a secluded bay perfect for the sailing boats, that has an unbelievable charisma and charm to it! It’s only 3km away from the historic Old Town of Korcula.
On the one hand, isolated from the city crowds and buzz, yet vibrant and dynamic enough to make your Korcula Hill stay just perfect!
What the Old Town lacks in size, it certainly makes up for in quality as it is very well preserved; the layout and structure of the Old Town and its walls stem from the second half of the 13th century. You will notice that the Old Town is laid out in a very special way, resembling something of a fishbone. The town was built in this way to protect against sea winds.
Abound with rustic charm, the medieval settlement of Korcula town has a year-round appeal. The palm-lined streets and ancient surrounding walls regularly invite comparisons with nearby Dubrovnik. And it's not hard to see why - but Korcula town tends to remain unbothered by the droves of tourists swarming the maritime capital over the summer months. All the better for the locals, and in-the-know visitors, who revel in its laidback, Mediterranean lifestyle.
The sixth-largest Adriatic island at 29 miles long and 5 miles wide, Korcula is also one of the greenest. It’s blanketed with dense woods of Aleppo pines, olive groves, and vine-striped hills. Peaceful stone villages are peppered throughout and the coastline is edged with indented coves, quiet, harbour-side restaurants, and a varied collection of beaches, from sandy to pebbly to slabs of rock.
