The beautiful island of #Korcula is a holiday haven with its numerous inlets, coves, and surrounding islets. Korcula has surface area of 270km2 and its landscape is covered in coniferous forests, dense evergreen underbrush, medicinal herbs and flowers. The islanders occupy themselves with fishing, shipbuilding and stone-masonry as well as cultivating vineyards, olive trees, orange trees, fig trees and almond trees.
Korcula has a long tradition in tourism. There are many cities and towns which stretch along the island's coastline - Korcula, Lumbarda, and #VelaLuka as well as in its interior Zrnovo, Pupnat, Cara, Smokvica, Blato.
Korcula is a city and harbour located on a small peninsula which is connected to the rest of the island by way of a small isthmus. The city has two swimming #beaches and just west of the city are the inlets of Srecica, Banja, and Vrbovica which are also great places to have some fun in the sun. The city of Korcula offers a large variety of private accommodations which include apartments, rooms, Bed & Breakfasts and luxurious villas. This beautiful historical city is one of the most well-preserved medieval cities in #. Stairs lead up to the entrance of the Old city and at the top of these stairs visitors will see two obelisks which were built as a tribute to the princes which once ruled this magnificent city. More historical and cultural monuments can be found in the city square such as the St. Marko cathedral, the Petra palace, the Arneri palace, the Gabriellis palace as well as many other smaller churches. It is said that Marco Polo, who was involved in a sea battle in the year 1298 near Korcula in which the Genovians conquered the Venetians and took him hostage, was born here in the year 1254. The house where he was born is located next to the city's cathedral, just right of the bell tower. The entire city is surrounded by fortress walls and towers and throughout its narrow streets there many restaurants and taverns where guests can try delicious Dalmatian cuisine. Every year in June Korcula hosts the game of knights Moraska which involves the traditional Dalmatian sword dance. This is a long historical tradition in memory of when the Turks attacked Korcula. Here two groups of warriors, dressed in original costumes, through song and dance fight for the young bride. The Dalmatian sword dance is a wonderful tourist attraction and something visitors must see.
There are eight towns on the island and one of them is Lumbarda located at the eastern end of the island. Lumbarda also has an old part of town which overlooks the inlets of Prvi Zal and Novi. Just east of the town is the Lumbarda field which is covered in red and yellow sand and is a place where vineyards flourish producing some of best of wines (Grk wine). Lumbarda is just 6km away from the city of Korcula and offers accommodations in its camp and hotel complex.
The fishing and farming town of Racisce is located on the northern part of the island and it was once inhabited by refugees who ran from the Turks back in the 17th century.
The town of Cara was built on a hillside overlooking a large vineyard where grapes called Posip are cultivated and the wine produced from these grapes was given the same name.
Blato is one of the largest towns on Korcula located in the island's interior, 4km away from the seaside. Here agriculture, including wine-growing, is the townspeople’s' main occupation. Every year, on April 23, the knightly games called Kumpanija are held in the town square. Blato has also preserved the tradition of gusle-playing.
Vela Luka is located on the western side of the island. The hills that surround Vela Luka protect it from the strong northern and southern winds. Today Vela Luka has become an important tourist destination due to its breathtaking landscape, surrounding islands (Osjak), inlets (Triporti), and olive groves which are known throughout the world.

L'isola di Korcula è una delle località turistiche più conosciute della #Croazia, si caratterizza per i bellissimi golfi e le insenature, le pinete secolari e gli splendidi paesaggi naturali. #Korcula ha una lunga tradizione turistica, i suoi abitanti si dedicano all`agricoltura, alla pesca e al turismo. Lungo la costa troviamo i seguenti centri turistici di Korcula, #Lumbarda e #VelaLuka, mentre all`interno si trovano Zrnovo, Pupnat, Cara, Smokvica e Blato.
Korcula è città e porto nella parte sud-occidentale dell`isola di Korcula. L`intera zona è ricoperta da pinete e si trovano alcune baie particolarmente adatte alla balneazione (Srecica, Banja, Vrbvica). A Korcula vi sono diversi stabilimenti balneari ed ad est del porto ci sono alcune piccole e suggestive isolette. Korcula ha mantenuto vivo il tradizionale torneo dei cavalieri con canti, chiamato Moresca, che ha luogo ogni anno, in luglio, in ricordo degli attacchi turchi all`isola di Korcula. Al torneo prendono parte due squadre di cavalieri, abbigliati con costumi d`epoca, gli uni in nero, gli altri in rosso, i quali, accompagnandosi con canti e danze, si battono per una giovane donzella. Questo suggestivo torneo è una delle attrazioni turistiche maggiori di Korcula.
Lumbarda è a 6 km da Korcula. Questo villaggio, che si presume sia stato fondato dai greci originari dell`isola di Lissa e che fu chiamato dai romani Eraclea, divenne nel XVI secolo il luogo di villeggiatura dei nobili curzolani. Il centro abitato è formato da una parte più vecchia, che sovrasta la baia chiamata Prvi Zal (Prima spiaggia) e da una parte nuova, lungo la costa. Oggi, Lumbarda è uno dei centri di produzione del celebre vino liquoroso Grk, ricavato da viti coltivate nella #sabbia. Le piccole spiagge fronteggiate da scogli e isolette sono ambite da chi ama la tranquillità. I turisti affittano le case dei contadini o #ville con #appartamenti e camere.
Vela Luka è cittadina e porto nella parte occidentale di Korcula, situata all'interno dell`ampia baia. Vela Luka è detta «la città più vecchia e più giovane», poiché sorse agli inizi del XIX secolo sul sito neolitico di Vela Spilja ed è uno dei centri maggiori dell`isola.
Blato è il centro abitato maggiore dell`isola di Korcula, a 4 km dalla costa, giace all`estremità orientale dell`omonima campagna. La superficie agricola principale è la campagna di Blato, area bonificata, coltivata a vigneti.
La straordinaria qualità della pietra delle isole della Dalmazia era già nota ai romani, che la usarono per realizzare i monumenti di Salona e del Palazzo di Diocleziano. A Korcula tale attività è cessata da tempo, come la tecnica scultorea degli scalpellini.

Near the town of Citluk it’s situated one of the most known sanctuary in the world #Medugorje . The parish of Međugorje is composed by the villages Medugorje, Bijakovici, Vionica, Miletina and Sumarci and it was established in 1892.
Medugorje owns its popularity to the appereance of the #Virgin Mary, who started to appear to a local group of kids the 24 June 1981. The kids were scared at first and run away, but the curiosity of the kids was stronger than the fear and the next day, on the same hour, they went to the place of the appereance where the Virgin show herself again and invited them to pray with her. That day, the 25 June, is celebrated as an anniversary of the Peace Quenn as the Virgin Mary introduced herself to the kids that day. The appereances were frequent in the beginning, and with every new appereance, as the witnesses said, she brought messages of peace, love and faith. For their testifing the witnesses and their families and relatives, along with few local priests, were prosecuted. The kids were brought in the police station on hearings and submitted on psicological exams, but it was found that they were perfectly healthy and that there were no evidence that they had lied about what happened in Medugorje. As time passed by the appereances were decreasing, the kids had grown up, but to some of them the Virgin Mary apperas even today from time to time.
Medugorje is visited by milion of #pilgrims every year who come here from all around the world to find their inner peace, the consolation and the strenght to cope with their daily problems trought praying and fasting.
The most significant places of praying in Medugorje are #Krizevac hill, the appearance hill (Podbrdo) and the curch of #St.Jacob apostle-the guardian of the pilgrims.
