... off the Dalmatian coast, off the coast of Croatia. It's a gorgeous island in the Adriatic Sea, in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. The inhabitants of the island are 97% Croats. Korcula is the second most populous Adriatic island just after Krk.

It's a 46,8 km long island, and its width is 7,8 km on average. Local people have made a living from fishing since prehistoric times. Many families have their own boat and a private jetty (molo). The island's economy hinges on tourism, but also on agriculture (the cultivation of grape vines, olives and fruit), and - as said above - on fishing and fish processing.
