11.08.2019. | Interesting news from tourism
Congratulations to Lumbarda, winners of this year's Večernji List Tourism Patrol award.
A nice boost for tourism in Lumbarda on Korcula, which has won the prestigious Tourism Patrol award, Croatia's oldest tourism award, organised by newspaper Vecernji List since 1975. Vecernji list reporters visit all the major destinations incognito and assess the quality of the tourism offer of each destination, before announcing a champion. Winners from 2013-2018 were Vis, Trogir, Split, Dubrovnik, Zadar and Korčula Town.
Lumbarda is known for its great beaches, relaxed lifestyle and one of Croatia's finest white wine grape varieties Grk.
In recent years, Korculan tourism has been focused on quality and not quantity, and the results are already being seen in a much higher level of tourism offer, as well as recognition.
Take a tour of the destination with the Lumbarda Tourist Board in the video above.

Gastronomy lovers in the delicacies of this island can enjoy the restaurants whose food will leave speechless.
