Korita is a village in the interior that originated in the 15th century after the migration from Zhara and after the devastation of Okuklje.
It was named after the recesses of natural stone that filled with water during rainy days.
Due to its geographical position, Korita was an important strategic position for monitoring the waters of the Mljet Channel and the open sea.

In the middle of the village is a tower that served as a defense against frequent pirate attacks. During the 17th and 18th centuries, people engaged in fishing and the places became richer. The main occupation was to catch and sell salted fish, especially sardines.
During that time, the village is inhabited by Dubrovnik, Ston and other areas, and Korita takes on the characteristics of an urban center.

I bought the salted fish especially the sardines to take back home. The tower found at the middle of the village served as a defense against frequent pirate attacks. I also learnt that, it was an important strategic position for monitoring the waters of the Mjet Channel and the open sea.

This town came to be in the 15th Century. It's a beautiful small town. It also served as a defense against pirate attacks. It is a small town located on a hill. Hiking to this place was an amazing experience.
