Being so proud of it I would love to show it you and share my love for it.
Most of my life I have spent on the island except for some years of unfinished law school at Sarajevo. After that I got employed at an Agency in Korčula as Operations Manager.
For the reasons of love I moved to the Netherlands at the age of 28.
For the reason of lack of love in the Netherlands returned to Korčula at the age of 47.
In the Netherlands I acquired varied professional education and huge professional experience which I rather well use when guiding.
Since my return I worked as Hotel Manager, Sales Manager, Concierge and Guests Relations at Lešić Dimitri Palace in Korčula (Relais & Chateau property). Being concierge and guests relations included guiding smaller groups.
After 8 years I was ripe for new challenge so I started on my own.
I am autodidact amateur historian and ethnologist.
Due to my interest in history and ethnography from my early 20's I was guiding journalists, visitors from abroad, VIP visitors to Korčula etc.
Content of my tours is mostly history, culture, tradition, gourmet & wine.
I love to share my love an knowledge with people who like to acquire it.
I posess wide range of historical and traditional knowledge of Island Korčula and neighbouring peninsula Pelješac. Also I am widely knowledgeable on wine production, food and folklore of the area.
History and traditions of whole South-Eastern Europe (former Yugoslavia) are my speciality too as well as comparing and putting local situation in a wider or global context.
A tour with me will allow you to get better and deeper undestanding of whole area of former Yugoslavia and in particular island and city of Korčula.
