Retreat location

Korcula is an enchanting Mediterranean island belonging to the central Dalmatian Croatia archipelago. The island is known for its crystal blue sea lush Mediterranean vegetation of pine wood, wild herbs, orange, lemon, mandarin and pomegranate trees, secluded little bays and endless wild fields, olive groves and vineyards, picturesque villages, and for the captivating beauty of the ancient stone town of Korcula. There are many charming and breathtaking islets surrounding the island as well.

Korcula has a long, rich history. According to legend, it was founded by Trojan hero Antenor in the 12th century BC. The island was first settled by Mesolithic and Neolithic peoples 20,000 years ago and is well known for its archeological found from that era. The name of the island comes from ancient Greek times when the Greek colonists from Corfu or Corcyra founded a small colony on the island in the sixth century BC. The Greeks named it Melaina Korkyra or Black Corfu after their homeland and the dense pinewood forests that Korcula is covered with.

The island became part of the Roman province of Illyricum after the Illyrian wars from 220 BC to 219 BC. Roman migration followed and Roman citizens arrived on the island. The great migrations of the sixth and seventh centuries brought Slavic invasions into this region. In the 12th century, Korcula was conquered by the Venetians, incorporated briefly into the Venetian Republic and rechristened Curzola.

The statute of Korcula was first drafted in 1214, largely guaranteeing the autonomy of the island. The town statute also prohibited slavery, making Korcula one of the first places in the world to outlaw the practice. Today, Korcula is often called Marco Polo Island, since the town is revered for being the possible birthplace and residence of one of the greatest travelers in the world history.
