After their Hvar in the Storm video went viral even before it was used for the Eurovision Song Contest, Croatia’s Timelapse masters Romulic and Stojcic are back on June 10, 2016, taking a closer look at Croatia’s UNESCO World Heritage in Sibenik.
They are the undisputed timelapse masters of Croatia, and ever since Timelapse Croatia was released a couple of years ago (and subsequently described in the national media as the best tourist promotion ever), the Osijek duo of Mario Romulic and Drazen Stojcic have been dazzling their fans with new timelapse videos showing Croatia in all its breathtaking beauty. Their recent ‘Hvar in the Storm’ was used as the video for the official Croatian Eurovision Song entry, Lighthouse, and has been viewed almost three million times so far.
Romulic and Stojcic have years of experience covering tourism all over Croatia, and there can be few blades of grass in the country not covered by them over the years. In their latest project, they turn their attention to Croatia’s UNESCO World Heritage. Croatia currently has seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites, St. James Cathedral in Sibenik, which is described by UNESCO thus:
The Cathedral of St James in Šibenik (1431-1535), on the Dalmatian coast, bears witness to the considerable exchanges in the field of monumental arts between Northern Italy, Dalmatia and Tuscany in the 15th and 16th centuries. The three architects who succeeded one another in the construction of the Cathedral – Francesco di Giacomo, Georgius Mathei Dalmaticus and Niccolò di Giovanni Fiorentino – developed a structure built entirely from stone and using unique construction techniques for the vaulting and the dome of the Cathedral. The form and the decorative elements of the Cathedral, such as a remarkable frieze decorated with 71 sculptured faces of men, women, and children, also illustrate the successful fusion of Gothic and Renaissance art.
