Great experience, stunning to watch, lots of sparks from the clashing swords flying. It is a great show but you better come earlier to get a good seat.

I hardly dare to say it because all local people like it very much. But for us it was a nice thing but a bit overrated. Anyway, if you are in town for more Ghana night, you should visit it

A real spectacle performed every Thursday night at 9pm by Croatian male dancers wielding lethally sharp swords with which they enact a battle between Crusaders and Moors (very topical!) to rescue a damsel in distress. It is absolutely stunning to watch and listen to the...More

We were a little disappointed with this event. The local singing before the event was boring and completely unnecessary and unadvertised. The sword dancing was good, but not excellent like expected.

Korcula is the only place in the world they do the sword dance. Performed right off the walls of Korcula town everyone enjoyed the performance. I recommend you sit in the back in the unlikely event there is a problem.

Tickets are available in many travel agencies in the town, too. You'll spot them easily when walking around the Korcula town.
