Description

Founded by the ancient Greeks as Korkyra Melaina or "Black Korcula," present-day Korcula is a fortress town surrounded by walls and dotted with towers dating back to the medieval period.

We will begin this Online Experience from the old town of Korcula, entering through one of the fortress gates that lead us to beautiful medieval stone buildings. Walking along the cobbled streets, we will pass by the City Hall and pay a visit to the Bishop's Palace. You will notice the unique shape of the town, which is laid out like a fishbone so that one is always near the seaside and it is impossible to get lost. 

Moving along, we will visit St, Marc's Cathedral and admire its beautiful architecture. Here, I will tell you more about the role religion plays in everyday life in Korcula today. You will also learn about the three brotherhoods and their processions, as well as about the traditional Moreska sword dance. Finally, we will make our way to Marco Polo's birth house - did you know the great explorer's journey through the silk road began in Korcula? Join me on this tour and I will accost you with more information about this and other astonishing facts about this living medieval town so rich in traditions. I look forward to taking you around!
