marcopolo filmLast week,as part of events marking the anniversary of the naval battle near the island of Korcula on September 1298, between the naval forces of the time, Venice and Genova, during which Marco Polo was taken prisoner, the brochure and a film on Marco Polo were launched in Korcula by the Croatian Tourist Board .

Speaking about the film and the brochure, entitled “Croatia – The Homeland of Marco Polo”, Croatian Tourist Board director Niko Bulic said they were based on scientific research and would confirm the fact that Marco Polo was a great 13th century seaman and explorer of the Far East, born on Korcula.
