Marko Polo

Marko Polo

Korčula is the birthplace of Marko Polo, a famous traveller around the Far East. Did you know that the number ‘million’ is being related to Marko Polo? Returning from China, he was exaggerating in his descriptions and quantities so much that the numbers of the time were simply insufficient. The number 1,000,000 used to be expressed as ‘a thousand thousands’. The word ‘emilioni’ was taken from Marko’s middle name Emilio (Marko Emilio Polo) and transformed into a ‘million’. From his travels he brought back rice, paper, pasta, silk and even the ice-cream…

Nikola Tesla

tesla novi

Tesla used to say that he was not an inventor but a ‘discoverer of things that exist in the nature around us’. He would first devise all of his experiments in his mind and then put them into practice. He stated that there were times when he could not distinguish between his imagination and the reality. He would then wave his hand in front of his eyes to make sure what was real and what was imagined. He was a scientist and an inventor, and one unit of measurement was named after him (the magnetic field strength).
