Korcula, Croatia: Adventure & Sunset Guide, Korcula, Croatia (B)

Home of the little walled town, or a ‘mini Dubrovnik’ as many like to call it, Korčula, Croatia is nothing short of charming. With water so clear it almost seems impossible, views of a dramatic cliffy Peninsula, and quiet alleyways of old town teeming with flowers, vines, coral shops, and old venetian blinds, it’s almost like a bit of a fairytale – like many places in Croatia, really.

Old Town – explore the beautiful vine-laden stone streets of Korčula’s old town. You will notice that all the streets on the east side are curved and all the streets on the west are straight – giving the town a fishbone-like shape. This is because, in winter, a very strong wind comes from the east in the winter. Hundreds of years ago, the Korčulans made note of this and made sure to curve the streets in the east so the wind couldn’t get through to the center of town, but made sure that the gentle western breeze could get into the town in the summer. How smart is that?! ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
