Moreska Sword Dance .:. Korcula

Moreska is a romantic war dance with swords that spread originally from the Mediterranean countries in the 12th and 13th centuries. It is supposed that Moreška first came to Korčula from Spain in the 16th century across the South Italy and Dubrovnik. Later, through centuries, Moreška disappeared from the Mediterranean and today the traces are discerned only in some parts, while it is still deeply rooted in Korčula, where its today’s pattern of an attractive war dance with real swords is unique in the whole world.
