Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mirko Seljan (April 5, 1871 - c. 1913) and Stevo Seljan(August 19, 1875 - June 7, 1936), also croatized Stjepan, were Croatian explorers. The brothers were born in Karlovac, Croatia (at the time part of Austria-Hungary). After receiving a basic education there and attending Gymnasium Karlovac, they started traveling across Europe. Older Mirko was, in 1898, known under the name Champion Globetrotter because he walked the distance between Paris, France and Saint Petersburg in Russia. It is believed that the brothers started their journey after being impressed by the books or lectures by another Croatian explorer, Dragutin Lerman, who was in Africa as leader of Henry Morton Stanley's team.show more
