Korcula is one of the most beautiful Croatian islands. By many, a favorite destination due to its pristine nature, clean sea, hidden bays, and rich cultural and historical heritage. It is the birthplace of the famous world traveler Marco Polo. The largest and most famous places on Korcula are the town of Korcula, the small port town of Vela Luka and the oldest settlement on the island of Blato. The old town of Korcula is the stone pearl of the Mediterranean, which is the tourist and historical center of the island. It is recognizable and special for its medieval fish-bone pattern and interesting city architecture, which is predominantly in the Gothic-Renaissance style. The statute of the town and island of Korcula, dating from 1214, is one of the oldest legal Slavic documents. The island of Korcula is rich in Aleppo and black pine, cypresses and olives and is the greenest Adriatic island. It is also known as the "White Wine Island" because it has a long tradition of viticulture and winemaking. Indigenous grape varieties and small family traditional wineries attract an increasing number of wine lovers every year. Traditional crafts on the island are shipbuilding and stone masonry. Just from the stone from Vrnik (one of the islands of the beautiful Korcula archipelago), many famous buildings of the world were built - such as Aya Sofia in Istanbul. For more than 400 years, the swordsmanship tradition has a long tradition, where almost every place on the island of Korčula has its knightly sword dance, which, due to its attractiveness and uniqueness, is included on the List of Protected Cultural Property of the Republic of Croatia. The most famous sword dance is Moreška from the town of Korcula, which depicts the struggle of two kings and their armies for the love of a girl, Bula.
