Top Sailing Destination: Korčula
The island of Korčula has a long history, as it was once a Greek settlement. It has interesting art and cultural attractions and is probably most famous for being the birthplace of Marco Polo. In the old city of Korčula you can visit his birth house. The Moreška dance is the second most popular cultural attraction of the island. It is a traditional sword dance, one of the oldest in Europe still performed, which is held on a weekly basis during summer. The dance presents a mock battle for a young woman between white and black swordsmen. Korčula is a top sailing spot due to its amazing natural beauties, being one of the greenest islands in the Adriatic and having many beautiful secluded bays and beaches.
