Split is the nearest larger city (another one is Dubrovnik) that is fairly close to Korcula Island.
Travel or transport to Korcula very often includes travelling via Split as its ferry port serves as the main hub for various local as well as international ferries – click here for all ferries that are sailing to and from Split.
Korculans go to Split quite often. To study, to do some shopping, to visit a hospital or to travel further away.
I love Split. It is a city that is a lovely place to visit at any time of the year. I never stay for long (for some reason, I always travel further away). However, even if I’m there for just a few hours I never missed the opportunity to have a nice coffee (with views) at Riva, its popular seafront promenade – have a look at this nice Riva video below:
Here is a list of the articles that cover some aspects of the city:
