Dear guests and visitors
On this tour we will visit north-west coast of Dubrovnik – Neretva country.
The first place on our way to island Korcula (pronounced Korchula) is ancient town named Ston.
Ston was among the first towns in Europe to be built according to a town- planning project.
Its 5 km long stone walls are especially interesting, during medieval period city walls were protecting the town , today those walls attract a hundreds of visitors who are amazed by their length and preservation.
Other attractions include the famous oyster and mussel farms and old salt-works where salt is still produced today out of the sea water.
After a short sightseeing we will continue our trip towards island Korcula.
According to legend, Korcula town was founded by the Trojan hero, Antenor, the founder of Padova, but that's only a legend. Town and island of Korcula were mentioned as early as the 10th century, but civilization on the island goes much further in past.
Korcula Town is also surrounded by city walls and it is one of Croatia's most romantic coastal towns which became a top destination of numerous cruise lines. Did you know that famous sailor Marko Polo was born on island Korcula in 1254, in family of merchants?
On our way back to Dubrovnik we will visit the beautiful green scenery and blue bays of the Peljesac peninsula where we will enjoy extraordinary tastes of Dalmatian wines in the local winery. Peninsula Peljesac is the most famous Croatian wine region!
