KORČULA SOUVENIRS

With an aim to promote and support initiatives for design and production of local souvenirs and products, Town of Korčula Tourist Board had published a Public call for application of products to become Town of Korčula souvenirs in the year 2020. This public call was opened for all the producers registered or with registration at the territory of Republic of Croatia.
The project aim was to certify the souvenirs that meet the set criteria.
The souvenirs had to present the continuity of artistic, cultural, historical and traditional heritage of Town and island of Korčula. The souvenirs had to present Korčula material, intangible and natural heritage.
The selected souvenirs cover 5 categories and will be promoted by Korcula Tourist Board web site and other online channels. The intention is to continue with public calls in coming years, thus continue to encourage production of souvenirs on the island of Korčula.
Therefore, we call all the souvenir shops in Town Korčula to express interest in including certified Korcula souvenirs in their assortment. The souvenir shops that offer the certified Korčula souvenirs will also be promoted through Tourist Board online channels.
If you are interested in such a co-operation, please contact Korčula Tourist Board where you will also be able to see the selected souvenirs.
