Yacho Kabaivanski, a celebrated Bulgarian writer, publicist, and veterinarian, is widely recognized under the pseudonym Marco Polo. Born in Plovdiv on January 15, 1907, he pursued his education in veterinary medicine in his hometown. Following the conclusion of the Second World War, he assumed the role of commissar for food and later ascended to the position of chief director of tourism.
Tragically, Yacho Kabaivanski passed away under mysterious circumstances on September 1, 1955. His legacy extends beyond his contributions to literature and public discourse; he is also remembered as the father of Raina Kabaivanska, one of the world’s greatest soprano singers.
