Excursion's informationsPelješac peninsula in southern Dalmatia in Croatia is part of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County.
Inhabited since the ancient times of Illyrian tribes, Greeks and Romans, it is known not only by its vineyards and quality wines, but also by its centuries longue tradition of navigation.
Typical houses of the captains can be seen in the villages along the coast.
One of the villages is Kučište, on the south west side of peninsula, a small village 5 kilometres from Orebić.
Orebić is the biggest settlement on the peninsula, located directly across a strait from the town of Korčula.
During the centuries Orebić was part of Dubrovnik Republic territory and was known for its navigators whose sailing ships navigated all over the world.
Many of these captains’ houses were recently renovated for tourist needs and lost its original aspect. However, those houses still represent important architectural examples of Pelješac region.
