Resumo

The brothers Mirko and Stjepan Seljan are one of Croatia’s most well-known explorers. Between 1903 and 1905, at the invitation of the Brazilian government, they explored the Brazilian states of Mato Grosso and Paraná with the aim of the river training of the country’s waterways and building of the new road and railroad communications. This paper reports about the results of the original research project based on an analysis of original expedition journals, manuscript maps and field sketches made by the Seljan brothers in Brazil.
