Račišće info (Korčula island)
Račišće is situated on the northern coast of Korčula. It is about 12 km away from the town of Korčula. Račišće was built in the late 17th century when the refugees from the Makarska area and Herzegovina moved here during the Venetian-Turkish wars. The residents quickly engaged in maritime affairs, thus creating the largest fleet of small coastal cargo ships on the island. Today, many of their descendants sail the oceans and seas under different national flags. Račišće is also known as an important tourist resort. Along the coast there are numerous taverns, country houses, and several attractive beaches such as the Samograd beach and Vaje beach in the eponymous bay. There is also the church of Our Lady Help of Christians, which was built in the 17th century, as well as the newer parish church of St. Nicholas.
