Shopping in Korcula Island - authentic goods, best outlets, malls and boutiques

Croatia - Korcula Korcula, like the other island territories, is not a good place for large-scale shopping.

The main thing is not to push hard – the local residents are sure that the buying process should bring pleasure to both the seller and the buyer. It is worth paying attention to the crafts made of coral, which are always good, and products from the Brač stone from the neighboring island of Brac. White limestone, according to the Croats, brings good luck and drives away the evil spirits. Take a closer look at the well-known Vucedol dove, a cult vessel used for traditional ceremonies a century ago.
Another very colorful souvenir – "Morcic" jewelry. The pendants, trinkets, earrings in the form of an amusing Moor in a turban were made from wood and served as a guard for sailors and fishermen.

For those, who prefer strong drinks, there are Slivovica, Travarica, Vinjak, Biska, and local vodka Lozavac. If you prefer sweet drinks, then take a look at the liquor Maraschino.
