“But if this body contains me
than is it also not so
that as I travel through places
places travel through me
and that sometimes, though I go,
places stay? ”

Excerpt from the poem ‘Places Stay’, by Danish author Birgitte Lyregaard

Korčula town, one of the “pearls of Adriatic”, was in my childhood quite different place then it is nowadays / Being a popular touristic destination it attracts thousands and thousands of people every summer / It is the birthplace of my mum and a home for that side of my family for many centuries / It was my childhood playground and the place of my first cultural and environmental education / If I would have to describe Korčula in one sentence it would probably go like this: A ‘Dionysian heaven’ in the summers and a ‘ghosts theater’ in the winters / There are so many peculiarities about this old Venetian town – existing long before Venetian Republic but the final look we see today is largely influenced by it / Its position – placed on a tiny peninsula perfectly conducting several Adriatic winds, always being naturally air conditioned; its architectural beauty – being constructed as a fort in the shape of a fish bone with side streets climbing toward the highest spot – a very old and quite unusual St. Marco’s Cathedral / For me Korčula is the radiating living entity wrapped up in incredible Mediterranean nature, the place of my personal growth, and a sonic island like no other //
