Korcula, Croatia

Jun 06, 2018 - Sea Cloud


Today the Sea Cloud expedition explored the alleged birthplace of Marco Polo. The morning was reserved for an interesting lecture on the history of Croatia that helped us have a better perspective and understanding of the western Balkans and its recent history. 

We anchored in the eastern port and set off for a tour of the historic town center, visiting the four-nave cathedral of St. Mark and its treasury.
