The small fishing village of Prigradica is situated on an idyllic, natural bay in the northern region of the southern Dalmatian Island of Korcula and is used as the harbor for the town of Blato lying inland on the island. In earlier times Prigradica was an important trading port for wine, olive oil and other products produced by the islanders. In the 19th century, after the Austria-Hungarian Empire had expanded the Marina, the town began to flourish. After the Second World War, the shipping trade suffered great loses and Prigradica's population fled the town. Many locals at this time were seeking new sources of revenue out in the wide world.

Meanwhile, the residents of Prigradica have now turned to tourism. As a tranquil seaside resort, Prigradica has everything you could possibly want and need: from humble shopping to local taverns and cafés, as well as football and basketball courts. Prigradica has retained its original charm and visitors on a tour of the town will still get to experience the many stone houses with their old shutters and the interesting details on doors and facades. The idyllic atmosphere and the beautiful beaches attract those travelers looking for a place to rest in particular. Those looking for a little more entertainment can drive about 10 km to Vela Luka, the second largest town on the Island of Korcula.
