Korcula A Must See in Croatia

Korcula A Must See in Croatia - Lucy Williams Global

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.

    This makes me want to go back so bad!! As we got off the ferry in Korcula my husband had a medical issue and we had to whip back to Dubrovnik, so sad we missed this beautiful little island. Great post!

    I am dying to go to Croatia. My best friend is originally from there and raves about it. Just need to save my pennies!

    This area looks beautiful. Croatia is very high on my list of places to visit, but I’d never heard of this before. I’m thinking about trying to see it on my trip in January, but I’m wondering if I’d be better off trying to plan a summer trip someday.

      It is a summer place, so there might not be a lot open in January. I went there also in November and nearly all the restaurants were closed!

    I’ve only visited Split in Croatia but it was lovely. Korcula looks absolutely gorgeous and not touristy at all. Will add it to my list if I venture back to Croatia.

    Hi Lucy, great post. I’ve been to Croatia twice when it was part of Yugoslavia – before the Balkan’s war. It was much let touristy then, and I’d love to go back and see how much it’s changed. Safe travels.

    • August 3, 2017 / 6:59 pm

      Thank you so much! I hope you get to go & see how it has changed!

  12. August 3, 2017 / 1:28 pm

    The water looks so blue! I also did not know that they had their own currency here. Never been to Croatia but I’ll consider making Korcula part of the trip if I do go, thank you

    • August 3, 2017 / 7:00 pm

      Croatia does not have Euros, but most places except them.. Hope you make a trip there one day.

  13. August 3, 2017 / 4:27 pm

    Wow, I didn’t even know about this place. Cool that they have wine tasting, sailing options and the Marco Polo museum.
