As reported by Danijela Mihalić Đurica, the Croatian National Tourist Board Director in France, the TV show “La Croatie au fil des eaux” (Croatia along waters) was broadcast on the famous and watched French-German TV channel ARTE, which specializes in cultural programs and documentaries about nature and travel.
In a show produced by the Croatian production company Šafarek, for 45 minutes, the richness of the biological diversity of Croatian regions and the beauty of Croatian national parks and nature parks are revealed to the French and German audience.
From the Drava across the Danube, Gacka, Zrmanja to the Neretva delta, viewers can enjoy Croatian natural river heritage diversity. They can learn more about almost 300 different species of birds in the Nature Park Kopački rit or the European storks’ village Čigoč. Besides, the show also mentions the “kingdom of bears” in Gorski Kotar, the impressively large trout of Gacka river, the “temple of birds” in the Neretva delta, and “the cascades that line like pearls on a necklace,” as the show describes the cascades of the Skradinski Buk waterfall in the National Park Krka.
The author of the show, well-known Croatian biologist and photographer Goran Šafarek, pointed out that he made the film in an effort to promote Croatian nature, as well as Croatia itself. “I tried to show many hidden gems of our country, which can certainly enrich the tourist offer outside the main tourist destinations,” Šafarek said.
More than 800,000 viewers watch the popular ARTE channel, and in addition to Germany and France, the show will be broadcast in Italy and Spain.
