Recognition for the southern Dalmatian island as Korcula Town finds itself on Conde Nast Traveler's list of the most romantic small towns in Europe.

Popular travel website Conde Nast Traveler has placed Korcula Town at number 7 in their list of the top 10 romantic small towns in Europe, a varied list which includes stunning destinations across the continent, such as Benasque in Spain and Colmar in France. 

Korcula Town, one of the largest settlements on the picturesque island of Korcula finds itself positioned between the equally impressive towns of Soglio (Switzerland) and Bamberg (Germany). Conde Nast Traveler describes Korcula Town as Croatia's best kept secret.

''Known as ''little Dubrovnik'' among locals, the seaside town of Korcula (located on the island of Korcula) is Croatia's best-kept secret. Like Dubrovnik, it's filled with medieval squares, Romanesque cathedrals, beautifully restored Renaissance buildings, and pretty clay-roofed homes, but its remote location keeps the crowds out and the vibe mellow. It's also close to vineyards (where you can try the delicious local Posip wine) and gorgeous sandy beaches, which are just a short stroll from the town center.'' writes Conde Nast Traveler.
