Great sword fight in costume. blood may be drawn, beware! Looks exhausting for the swordsman. A tradition that is alive only in Korcula!

This was a fabulous and very local experience as the heritage of old Korcula is brought to life through these amazing young men.

There is not much enternainment on Korcula, so don't skip this one. And actually, this is something special. I would say it is not a dance but more like boxing :) I have seen blood on the towels.

Liked the dancing but less interested in the first act, the singers. Started late 9pm, some people dozed off.

lots of dialogue which we did not understand so had to guess at what the story was about and the arena was very small but the sword dancing was definatley a skill and worth a look

All time and place story of battle for love presented in sword dance. Great coordination and performance! We were amazed at it. Just listen to the swords meet - you will hear only one bang even though there are a lot of swords involved. Highly recomended, even for children!

We really enjoyed being able to see these historic, traditional Moreška dances. Well worth the 100 kuna for a ticket (£10) for an hour's entertainment (including a pre-show of fabulous singing). We went on the Monday night, and it is also on one other night each week. The venue was packed but I'm not sure how far in advance you... More

It's a short enough show, very lively and not expensive. You should see it as you may never get the chance again....

Love everything about Korčula. The Moreska dance is a piece of living history, history in motion, tradition so well kept that will certainly outlive all of us. Extraordinary sword dance. Cannot visit Korčula without experiencing Moreska.
