This old Venetian border town is where I was born and where I grew up. I know all its narrow streets where I used to play with my friends in the ruins of the old abandoned houses.
Cathedral Square, over its whole length, we used to play soccer, was to be chased away by the priest or nun that took care of the church.
Growing up I started noticing some things that were arousing my curiosity. Some details on the houses, some inscriptions in strange languages. . . It became much more than only our old playground, it became my foremost interest.
In my teens, I started reading about it's history, art, architecture. From that moment on I was swallowing all the books I could lay my hands on. Turning 28 I moved to The Netherlands for my family. I worked hard, but still, I read all I could find. Then I started widening my knowledge putting Korcula with it's history an in broader perspective of the Balkans, Europe, World. . .
All of this knowledge harvested through all these years I will eagerly share with you.
I'll take you to discover the island of Korcula. My island, where I grew up and lived most of my life. One of the most enchanted islands of the Adriatic.
We'll talk about it's history starting at the city of Korcula and dash across this magnificent island.
You'll see and feel centuries-old villages, enjoy delicious food that the island can offer, it's indigenous wines, olive oil, learn about its traditions. What can I say more? No need - I invite you to come and experience yourself!
