Korcula is a peaceful island situated in the Adriatic Sea within the Dubrovnik-Neretva County of Croatia. The island lies just off the Dalmatian Coast and has an area of around 100 square miles. Legend states that the island was founded by Trojan hero Antenor in the 12th century BC but archaeological evidence suggests that it was first inhabited by the Mesolithic and Neolithic people. Korcula's warm climate, verdant scenery and immaculate sandy beaches have made it an excellent holiday destination. The region is relatively unheard of, which allows for a peaceful and quiet atmosphere, perfect for people looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Korcula's historic old town is the region's most popular tourist destination, offering a great insight into the archipelago's fascinating history and rich culture and heritage.
