The world-renowned DJ apparently likes to shoot his videos in Croatia.

The renowned DJ Alan Walker has recorded the video for his latest song, Darkside, in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro. The video, that has been seen more than eight million times in four days, features the monument to the Battle of Sutjeska in Tjentište (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and the monument to the People’s Revolution in Moslavina in Podgarić (Croatia), reports Index.hr on August 1, 2018.

The monumental concrete sculpture in Tjenište was made by sculptor Miodrag Živković in 1971, in the memory of the Battle of Sutjeska. The monument is the only part of the memorial complex that has survived the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, because during the demolition there were not enough explosives to destroy it completely.

The monument consists of two symmetrically arranged 19-metre concrete wings, which fit into the natural landscape. Between the wings, there is an opening lined with fighters on the move, and behind it a plateau with stone strips where the names of battle units are inscribed.

The Monument to the People’s Revolution in Moslavina is located at Podgarić in the Moslavina region of Croatia, authored by sculptor Dušan Džamonja. It is 10 metres tall and 20 metres wide. During the Second World War, the Moslavina Hill was a Partisan base in the area near Zagreb. Near the village of Podgarić, a Partisan hospitals was founded in 1942, and with time Podgarić became the centre of the uprising, with the regional headquarters for the northern Croatia located there.

The video starts with the shots of Kravica waterfalls near Ljubuški in Herzegovina.

Alan Olav Walker is a 20-year-old Norwegian-British DJ whose most successful song is Faded in 2015. Last year, DJ Mag named him as the 17th best DJ in the world.
