Korcula is a medieval city surrounded with walls and situated on the eponymous island in Southern Adriatic. The streets of Korcula resemble a fish bone: a main street with 26 side streets. The eastern streets are slightly curved, the western ones run straight, and the reason is - the breeze: during hot summer days the streets provide an escape from the boiling hot weather, while in winter the city is protected from strong winds. The streets are very narrow and all but one, are in fact stairways. The one that isn't is called Philisophers Street because you can safely walk up and down and be lost in your thoughts and dreams, without having to watch your step.
Marco Polo was born in one of the stone houses here in Korcula. Yes, really!
A fun fact: There's more wine than water on the island.

Zadar is well known for its Sea Organ, a unique instrument made of tubes beneath marble steps and played by the sea waves. The bigger the waves, the louder the music.
Nikola Bašić, who designed the Organ, also designed the nearby Greeting to the Sun - a beautiful 22-meter circle made of 300 multi-layered glass plates that produce a unique show of lights.
But Zadar is more than that: The Church of St. Donatus dates back to the 8th century. Its shape is circular and it belongs to the Pre-Romanesque period.
