The best way to get through this windy and rainy day is to take an aereal tour of Croatia
We always like to post videos produced by tourists and visitors, and the video “Croatia from Above”, published on March 22, 2016, not only showcases the beauty of Croatia but it does it from a bird’s-eye view making it even more breathtaking.
The author Dennis Schmelz says: There is a reason why the Game of Thrones was filmed in Croatia. The natural beauty of the country leaves visitors breathless as they struggle to take in the vastness of the sunny coastline or the heights of the Dinaric Alps. This video captures the beauty with the assistance of modern GoPro Cameras and state-of-the-art DJI drones. Take a trip through the Croatian skies, and see Croatia as it has never been seen before.
Dennis Schmelz is a professional filmmaker from Erfurt, Germany and within the scope of his work he loves to discover new and exciting places, meet interesting people and come in contact with unique stories. He certainly told a great story with this video and kudos for not just focusing on the well-known tourist destinations but showcasing Croatian mountains, the coast and, of course, national parks.
I spoke to David about his clip and his impressions of Croatia.
Hom much time did you spend in Croatia in order to get enough material for this video?
I was in Croatia for about a week and that’s how long it took to capture all these images. I was there in the end of April and out of high season, so all the places that are usually busy were pretty easy to reach since there were no summer traffic jams.
How many locations did you visit and how did you select the ones you wanted to film?
Honestly, I’m not sure how many locations I visited during my stay. I think I stopped my car whenever I would see a stunning view along the way (and that was pretty much all the time). I got a flight to Split, then I drove to the Krka National Park, than to Dubrovnik (because the weather in the South was much better at this time), than to Ston – Trpanj and with the ferry back to Ploče, then to Zadar (with a day tour to Kornati Islands), than to Pag – Prizna to Starigrad (with a lot of stops on the way).
That is one busy itinerary. Did you have any help or were you visiting all these places by yourself? Some of those locations are not easily accessible.
I would like to thank Branko Mijatović from Kornati Excursions and Bruno Marasović from Velebit Photo Safari who helped me a lot to reach the best photo spots by boat or by a jeep. Without them, I would have missed out on a lot of great shots.
