View near Vela Luka. Vela Luka is the second largest city on the island of Korcula

Vela Luka has many archeological and architectural points of interest. On the south slope of the hill, Pinski Rat, there is an extraordinary archaeological site. It is called Vela Spila (Big Cave) and it is one of the most important prehistoric cave dwellings in Europe. Vela Spila provides a picture of life on the Mediterranean of Mesolithic and Neolithic people living in that region.

Korčula is an island in the Adriatic Sea, in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County of Croatia. The island has 46.8 km (29.1 mi) long and on average 7.8 km (4.8 mi) wide.
The island of Korčula belongs to the central Dalmatian archipelago, separated from the Pelješac peninsula by a narrow Strait of Pelješac, between 900 and 3,000 metres wide.
Major cities on the island are Korcula and Vela Luka
Korčula is linked to the mainland by a regular ferry service that runs between Dominče, just outside of Korčula Town and Orebić.There are numerous other local ferry services including one linking Vela Luka and Lastovo. The main Croatian ferry operator Jadrolinija runs a service linking Korčula Town with Rijeka, Split, Hvar, Mljet, Dubrovnik and (from May to September) Bari.
