Guess what? Korčula is also named and spelled Island of Korčula - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.
Island of Korčula is a small island in the Adriatic Sea near the Dalmatian Coast. The island is relatively small -- less than three hundred square kilometers and with population of about seventeen thousand people. Three of the largest towns in Korčula are Korčula, Vela Luka, and Blato. The town of Korčula is alleged to be the town in which Marco Polo was born in the mid-thirteenth century; however, there are disputes (other possible cities are Venice and Istanbul). Specifically, streets and a region of the city (according to records that have survived until today) are called Polo. Marco Polo's house corresponds to the area of the earliest days, which belonged to the Polo family.
Island of Korčula was more important during the Middle Ages than now. In the fourteenth century, Korčula was under the rule of Dubrovnik, and for the next five centuries under Venice. Then, it was part of Austria but it was occupied by France, Italy, and Germany at different points of its history.

Loved Korcula. It's up there with Dubrovnik in my opinion. Make sure to check out Fresh*! Lovely couple from Canada run it plus it's the first wraps and smoothies bar in Croatia.
What a beautiful island. It is bigger than I expected and when I saw the old town of Korcula-- well, all my plans of travelling around vanished. Korcula is wonderful, peaceful and friendly and it's odor... it smells like pinetrees everywhere, and the turquoise bays are dotted with islands.
