Practicalities of Korcula Town

by Marianne2

While the Old Town of Korcula is the main focus of most visitors’ interests – and justifiably so, for its medieval walled fortified charm, narrow lanes that self-ventilate because of attention to city planning, a fascinating museum, opulent abbey treasury, and Gothic-Renaissance cathedral -- practical aspects of the "newer" town can assist the traveler.

Seasons: I’ve stayed here in both early September and mid-April. April was by far my favorite, as luckily the weather was perfect and sunny, breezy but not cold, and there were virtually no tourists. September was hot, crowded with tourists, but on the other hand it was also a livelier scene.

Upon arrival, look for this posted map to orient yourself. It’s along the west waterfront just south of the tourist office, which is beside the prominent Hotel Korcula. The tourist office did not have free maps, like most – they enforced buying theirs, which I find defeats the purpose of aiding the traveler.

Southeast of the walled town is a piazza-type area adjacent to the sea, which has a supermarket, several internet cafes nearby (photo #2), a colorful fruit and veggie market (photo #3), Marko Polo Tours, and the grand formal stone staircase which takes one through the walled city’s south gate (Veliki Revelin, photo #4). From here, the charming old town starts, often crowded with tourists (photo #5). Seaside restaurants and cafes encircle the peninsula-like town, adjacent to the ramparts.

Instead of tourist trinkets, I brought back for my friends small locally-made items from the supermarket, things that the average Korculan might use – spices such as paprika, great jams, tinned pates, specialized herb teas, and local brandy.

For those interested in boating, there’s a large marina nearby, where sailors of many nationalities congregate at the Yacht Club, and also dozens of locally built wooden tour boats, made from the island’s indigenous holm-oak. For taxis, rental cars, bicycles, and scooters, contact www.korcula-croatia.com or rent@korcula-rent.net.

I don't think you can go directly from Korcula.

There is a ferry from Split to Venice, and from Korcula to Split.

Travel Tips for Korcula

Oranges

by Enzyme_X

In the odl town of Korcula where all the building are packed together there is very few space for vegetation. Space was precious and was used for more important purpouses than parks. Well, here and there some house has a yard where some trees grow. Among them orange trees. And when the fruits are ripe they are just teasing to be picked. They looked so juicy. But you have to be hell of a good jumper to get one.

Best Beach on Korcula?

by Echo_29

Due south of the village of Cara is the seaside village of Zavalatica. With map in hand drive to the east of town to the end of the road above the small cove named U. Zitna. Park and walk down to this little sandy beach.

Ston

by mvtouring

This is a little town we passed on the way to Dubrovnik by bus. They harvest sea salt here, but the thing that got my curiosity was the long wall that was built all along the hills and around the town/castle.

Following info given by fellow VT
In 1333 the Republic of Dubrovnik took the power over Peljesac peninsula and built two towns - Veliki Ston (Big Ston) and Mali Ston (Small Ston). They were connected with a
4,5 long walls in order to protect the peninsula from Turkish invaders from the
mainland. Actually, the salt plains in Ston were very important source of income for
Dubrovnik - they traded salt to Ottomans in Bosnia.

Korcula market

by mvtouring

The market area is where all the locals get together and where they sell their fruit and veg and some other things. The tomatoes were to die for as well as the cherries. Next to the market we found this old lady in her traditional clothes selling tablecloths.
