    Location of Orebić

    This Croatian town is in Dalmatia, in Dubrovnik-Neretva County. It lies in the south-western part of Pelješac peninsula, at the foot of Mount Sveti Ilija. There is a ferry connection to the town of Korčula, on the other side of the Pelješac Channel.

    History of Orebić

    The first inhabitants of Orebić were the Illyrians in 2000BC. They lived in fortified settlements built on the nearby hills. The Roman Octavian ended their rule. Later, the ancestors of Croatians, the Slavs arrived in the 7th century. Orebić became part of the Republic of Ragusa by the 14th century. The town got its current name in the 16th century when the well-known noble Orebić family of sea captains moved here. They played an important role in local history.
    Another interesting fact is that the local seamen made up a significant part of the navy of the Republic of Dubrovnik. The development of Orebić became even more rapid in the 18th century. Then, it fell into the hands of the French, who had defeated the Republic of Ragusa. After the fall of Napoleon, the region was under Habsburg rule. In 1918 the new Serbian-Croatian-Slovenian state and later Yugoslavia took over.
