Blato is an inland town on the hills in the centre of the Croatian island of Korcula, on the central Dalmatian coast. It is a town of agriculture and wine making and the 4,000 or so inhabitants are not as involved in the tourist industry as elsewhere on the island. This gives Blato a pleasingly traditional, Croatian atmosphere and you can enjoy it for yourself when you rent your holiday accommodation in Blato from 9flats. A holiday apartment in Blato allows you to stay within the local community, mixing with the locals and learning about their culture, instead of being separated in a tourist hotel. It provides an authentic travel experience much like couchsurfing in Blato but your holiday apartment in Blato offers much more privacy and comfort in your own room or entire apartment.
Exploring from your holiday apartment in Blato
Blato literally means ‘mud’ in Croatian. This is because the area often flooded before the locals managed to drain it and turn it into some extremely fertile land, ideal for farming and vines. After a few glasses of wine in the evening, you might find the locals performing the traditional battle dance, ‘Kumpanija.’ The town has a temple dedicated to Maria Petković, which attracts many pilgrims, and a local museum, Ethno House Barilo. Caramelised almonds and flavoured honeys are among the local delicacies and the town has some of the best views on the island. Blato also has a pleasant town square, a beautifully landscaped park and a few cafes and bars to relax in.
Choosing your holiday accommodation in Blato area
A holiday apartment in Vela Luka will find you in this charming little port on the northwest of Korcula. Over the last century, this fishing village has become an attractive small town, set around the deep bay. Here you will find the locals busy with farming, olive oil making, wine making and, of course, fishing. A holiday apartment in Smoquizza meanwhile, will see you staying in this traditional Croatian village in the hills, well away from the tourist crowds and with splendid views over the island.
Moving on from Blato
Before departing Croatia, a visit to the Pearl of the Adriatic is a must and a holiday apartment in Dubrovnik the perfect base as you explore this stunning city. The medieval fortifications have long protected a city that once rivalled Venice for power but now they simply provide a beautiful backdrop as you wander this lovely seaside resort town. There is fabulous food, great beaches and lots of history to enjoy in this southern Croatian beauty. Leaving Croatia, a short trip across the Adriatic will take you to a holiday apartment in Venice where you can compare the two beautiful cites and decide which one is your favourite. Wherever you go, 9flats has great local accommodation in stunning locations, so book with us for a better travel experience.
