Laid Back Korcula

sunny 28 °C

About 120 kilometres northwest of Dubrovnik is a quaint little island that hasn't changed much over the centuries. Not many tourists bother to stop in Korcula as they rush from the hotspot of Dubrovnik to Split. But we had plenty of time to smell the roses and wander the narrow lanes of this pretty place...

All life on small islands is centred around the sea and Korcula is no exception. There is great excitement once or twice a week when the big Jadrolinija ferry arrives from Split...

But most of the time the little boats bob lazily in the harbour and there is hardly a soul to be seen...

The canons in the castle have lain idle for years...

And Korcula's old city within the castle walls waits patiently for a busier time...

We loved the peace and quiet of this pretty place and are pleased that the Dubrovnik's hordes have no time to stop here and stare...
