MAGICAL AND AUTHENTIC CROATIA

The most famous Croatian photographer Ivo Pervan says that Šibenik is the most photogenic city in the world. One can argue the whole region can be included in that statement – the waterfalls of the Krka National Park, the islands of the Kornati archipelago, the scents of the hinterland villages, all of which can be conveyed in photography. Our tour will not be lacking in the experiences and motives for countless photographs. We begin in Šibenik, in its old town core, with its great fortresses. The islands of Prvić and Zlarin exude the Mediterranean as it once was, and the same goes for their architecture and visuals. The magic of the Krka waterfalls is best experienced outside of the hot summer months, with plenty of water and the absence of tourists. Hidden secrets are kept in the villages, stone houses, drywall structures, local specialties and wines, eye catching and delicious foods. Accompanied by a tour and photo guide, you will have the opportunity to discover the best hidden photo locations that offer stories of a rich culture and gastronomy.
