Port of Korcula

An island near the southern tip of Croatia, the country to which it belongs, Korcula is steeped in shipbuilding and maritime history. Through the centuries, Korcula has been controlled by Greeks and Romans, and rival fleets from Venice and Genoa also fought to occupy the land before they both became part of a united Italy.
