In the left foreground, the massive Velika kneževa kula (Large Knight’s Tower) is the most impressive of the towers in the historic fortified walled city of Korčula on the lovely Croatian Island of Korčula. The taller tower in the background is Mala kneževa kula (Small Knight’s Tower).

The city wall was mostly built in the 14th Century and partly pulled down in 1875. It has eight remaining defense towers. Most are standing, although one has only the basement left.

Korčula is the alleged birthplace of the famed explorer Marco Polo.
