About Korcula town and Lumbarda

Birth place of Marco Polo, Korcula town is a must see place in Croatia. Nearby Lumbarda with sandy beaches is a great family destination.

Korcula Town, considered to be the birth place of Marco Polo, is a beautifully preserved mediaeval town dating from the 13th Century. The town is fortified and positioned on a small elevated peninsula providing a commanding position over the strait between the island and the mainland. Today Korcula's narrow alleyways and town squares provide the setting for bars, restaurants, shops and galleries. There are many excellent restaurants and classy boutique hotels and a cocktail bar in one of the circular towers that form a part of the ancient fortifications. One of the most picturesque and important historic town in Croatia. Well worth a day trip.
