About - KORCULA, Croatia
It is believed that the greatest traveler and explorer of all time, Marco Polo, was born in Korčula in 1254. On 07th September 1298, the great naval battle between the Genoese and the Venetian armadas took place in front of the town of Korčula. The Venetians were defeated, and the Genoese imprisoned, among whom Marco Polo was freed on payment of a large ransom in 1299. In a Genoese prison, Marco Polo dictated his experiences about his journey to China to Rustichelli. These journeys are described in the book “Il Milione”. Marko Polo died in Venice in 1324.
