While 40 churches and chapels from different periods are “scattered” along the wooden island, the fortress Kaštel from the hill keeps an eye on the medieval town of Lastovo. Invisible from the seaside and hidden in a natural amphitheater. The town preserves the treasury of sacral art: the church of Sv. Kuzma and Damjan, as well as Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque stone houses.

Refresh yourself in the nearby bays of Zavalatica, Brna or Istruga, a bay of healing sea mud. One of the biggest towns on the island, Blato.
The masked celebration of the half of the New Year, which takes place on June 30, is the craziest night. Then the streets of Korčula turn into a large dance floor. Laughter spreads through idyllic bays such as Prigradice, Prižba, and Grščice, where fishing festivals take place.
Day 6; Hvar
The most sophisticated Croatian island is a true Mediterranean fairy tale. Once a main antique crossroad of sea routes in the Adriatic, today the destination of “charterers” eager for fun and peaceful family holiday.
