Okay, okay, it’s obvious this place is terrible. However, I’m writing this review to stick up for a bit of history. Marco Polo was born in the Province of Venice, which is now known as Korcula. Croatia was established in 1991. Before you go slamming...More

Really, that is all there is. They have started the renovations but that is far from complete. Very disappointing. Maybe the museum in town is better, did not have the time though...

It's the worst and I Mean THE WORST tourist attraction in the whole world. How could they dare to even charge you??? It costs 20 kunas to enter and believe me... It's just 3 floors of stars. Not a single room, not a single piece...More

First of all, Marco Polo was born in Venice and not in Korcula! There is not a single serious evidence suggesting that he was born or originally from Korcula. Moreover, there is literally nothing to see in this alleged house of him. Korcula is very...More
