Korcula to Dubrovnik by sea, Wed, June 11

by Tessa11

Is there anyway to go from Korcula to Dubrovnik on Wednesday by ferry or catamaran? This would be much prettier, I think, then by bus.

Did you check jadrolinija already?
Don't be so sure about it being prettier though--I think that bus ride through the Peljesac peninsula is stunning, and if you have already had a ferry ride (for example, Hvar to Korcula), then you aren't missing out.
But then, I have always taken the bus on that stretch.

Travel Tips for Korcula

Moreska dance

by canaglic

The town of Korcula Croatia is well known for MORESKA – a traditional sword dance and drama that was common through the Mediterranean in 12th and 13th century, reaching Korcula in 16th century from Italy and Dubrovnik.

The dance originated in Spain and is associated to the conflict between Moors and Christians. In Dalmatia its popularity was almost certainly linked with the struggles against Ottoman Empire, above all with the victory over a Battle of Lepanto, the first major Ottoman defeat by the Christian powers, which ended the myth of Ottoman naval invincibility. Through the centuries Moreska vanished from the Mediterranean and now days is only to be find in Korcula, where it is performed for over 400 year.

Borak

by JLBG

This is not really Off The Beaten Path but off the old town, hence off what is usually visited in Korčula.

Borak is the eastern district of Korcula, south to the old town. It is mostly pedestrian only. Photo 1 shows an amazing kind of amphitheater with an entrance framed by two pinnacles. The semi-circular place has a flat, paved area and a stone bench around. It has to be designed for some kind of show.

Photo 2 and 3 show the stone carving standing at each end. It is all in Latin and as my knowledge of Latin is limited, I was last to translate it properly. As far as I have understood it Petro Lowen built it in 1815 for use and pleasure of the citizens of Curzola (Korčula in Venetian and Italian). Korčula was under the rule of the British Navy from 1813 to 1815. From 1815 to 1818, it was part of the kingdom of Dalmatia that was attributed to the Austrian crown.

Photo 4 is a glimpse into the yard of a private yard of a house in Borak. What a nice place!

Marco Polo's house

by solopes

One of the highlights of the island is the house were Marco Polo seems to have lived. For the moment it is only a ruin, with the recuperation works disturbed by the flocks of tourists that constantly invade the place.

Nothing in particular to see, just a detail in the walk across the small city.

Kula Kanalević

by JLBG

Kula Kanalević (Kanalević’s Tower), as locals name it is also named Balbi Tower, after Alviso Balbi, Doge of Venice, that ruled Korčula at the time when it was built. Locals name it Kula Kanalević after a XVIth century Korčula poet that lived in a neighboring house and used to stand on top of the tower to gaze at the landscape.

Kula Kanalević stands on the north-west of Korčula. It was built between in the late XVth and underwent heavy repairs in 2007.
