Korčula is one of Dalmatia’s most relaxing getaways and has one of the best preserved medieval centres in the Adriatic. Historic Korčula is therefore the most popular south-Dalmatian destination after the more crowded Dubrovnik. Narrow streets and old stairways, old churches, palaces, mighty walls, cannon protected fortress, romantic small restaurants, red roofs and something more. Once you start strolling the old town streets through one of two gates your first impression is the enormous influence of Venetian architecture, visible at every corner of the town. It’s a birthplace of famous Marco Polo. Local records say that Marco Polo was born in this and his house makes an interesting visit. Cathedral of St. Marco with its square is center of the town. Korcula town has a lot of renaissance and baroque palaces, belonging to famous aristocratic families, some of the palaces are converted to hotels or museums but all of them are unique examples of renaissance, baroque and gothic era.
