The Moreska Sword Dance is Korcula's proudest tradition and one of the Adriatic's most unusual customs. At one time this "fighting dance" was prevalent in southern Europe. Essentially, it's a danced version of a sword battle and tells the story of an abducted princess. The story begins with a speech by the princess who declares her love for the White King (dressed in red for the dance). Unfortunately for her, the Black King is in love with her and has stolen her away from the White King.
