Prigradica is a small village on the island Korčula. It is 4 kilometers away from Blato, 12 from Vela Luka and 45 kilometers long road leads to the town Korčula. Due to its special position, Prigradica lays in one of the earliest inhabited bays on the island. It is located on the north of the island with a panorama on the island Hvar. Prigradica used to be valuable harbor for transportation of vine and oil produced on the island, mainly in neighbor settlement Blato. Its historical role is obvious even today; there are great number of imposing stone houses, which were used as a magazines for transported goods. Today, those buildings are a part of Prigradica`s rustically charm and an agenda of its antiquity.
Prigradica is small, surrounded by pretty pebble coves and hundreds years old olive groves. It is a place for calm and complete rest. Cosy apartments facing to the sea are full of freshness even in the hottest summer days, due to the mistral which blows directly to the bay. Thus Prigradica is, maybe, the only village in Korčula without mosquitoes. In the landscape of the village dominates big dock with the pear, built during the time of Austro-Hungarian monarchy.
