Korcula is a Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea. It is a must see in Croatia, it is one of the most beautiful places I have been to. I discovered this little town while cruising around the Mediterranean last year.
I was sailing in late September to the beginning of November. This is a really nice time to travel as it is a little quieter and the temperature has cooled a few degrees. So, you are not sweating while taking in the amazing scenery and sights!
I wanted to share with you all about my cruises from last summer as I went to some amazing places. The Norwegian Fjords, the Baltic region and the Mediterranean and discovered some new ports of call that I loved.
Korcula in Croatia is a little gem, a small town surrounded by a city wall with tiny streets. Only, big enough for people to walk down. With small churches, shops, restaurants and wine shops. It is like a mini Dubrovnik without the crowds!
The ocean was aquamarine with the mountains in the distance, picture perfect. It was not busy there either which made it quite charming after visiting some ports with thousands of people milling around.
The streets were tiny with sandstone bricks with little churches, that were gorgeous. Korcula had lots of little jewellery shops and wine shops with wine tasting.
Korcula is the birthplace of Marco Polo the famous explorer. I went to visit the Marco Polo museum that showed his life. If you are interested in his travels it is worth a visit.
At the time it cost 8 Euros entrance. They give you an iPod to listen to the story of his travels through Asia to his imprisonment and back to Venice as you walk through the museum.
While I was in Korcula I had to sample the local cuisine so I enjoyed a glass of the local white wine and a carpaccio of octopus while enjoying a view of the crystal clear water.
