The Makarska Riviera.

For some beach heaven, for others apartment hell. One of the most beautiful and most popular destinations on the Adriatic coast with its seemingly endless magnificent beaches, Makarska has been a smash hit for tourism in recent years, and the explosion of apartments and private accommodation options have reflected that growth. 

But it was not always that way. 

Continuing our look at how things used to look in Croatia through a series of archive footage, a delightful new addition to the series, taking us back to Makarska in 1973, which was uploaded to YouTube earlier this week. 

The footage, which is hosted by YouTube channel, showcases many videos of destinations around the globe from years gone by, with a healthy selection from the countries of former Yugoslavia. 

Archival footage shot by a filmmaker from West Berlin during his summer holidays in Yugoslavia in September 1973.

Things have certainly changed in West Berlin in the last 48 years, as they have too in Makarska.
