Marko Marulić Square

Marko Marulić ( 18 August 1450 – 5 January 1524) was a Croatian national poet and Renaissance humanist, known as the Crown of the Croatian Medieval Age and the father of the Croatian Renaissance. He signed his works as Marko Marulić Splićanin (“Marko Marulić of Split”), Marko Pečenić, Marcus Marulus (or de Marulis) Spalatensis, or Dalmata. He was also the first who defined and used the notion of psychology, which is today in current use. Marulić’s portrait is depicted on the obverse of the Croatian 500 kuna banknote, issued in 1993.
