An interesting evening with my family! Hats down to the guys with swords and all their jumping and the sparks coming out of their swords! We would have preferred if they had family tickets available.

Not only was there the sword dance, but a group dancing in traditional costumes and a lovely choir. An entertaining evening. Good value for money at 100 kuna per person. Arrive about half an hour before it starts. Buy the tickets a couole of hours...More

Tickets are available in many travel agencies in the town, too. You'll spot them easily when walking around the Korcula town.
