If you look carefully the ground plan of Korcula, you will notice that streets towards north are straight, and streets towards south curved.
In summer the wind blows from the north and the street are built so that the wind can blow over whole town and cool it down.
In winter, cold wind blows from the other side. And to block it's ''entrance'' into town, streets on that side are curved.
Korcula is subtle, touches you with caution. Korcula wants to keep it's charm and dignity. She had heard of other proud towns now sunken under tents advertising beer.
Look around, and you will notice welcoming stairway to cocktail bar situated on one of the towers. Another one on the main plateau overlooking the harbor, still showing off ancient canons.
All Venetian lions, all guilds emblems, all their fresh laundry and flowers still honestly presented - for us to see who they are.
