Photography tour to Croatia

Posted by on 3. February 2015 in Blog / Journal, Workshops | Comments Off on Photography tour to Croatia

There is only one month left to take advantage of the ‘early bird special’ rates for the 2015 Photography Tour to Croatia (September 28 – October 10, 2015).

Renowned for its natural beauty and historical heritage, Croatia is rapidly gaining popularity as a travel destination. Join me in September of 2015 for a 13-day photography tour to some of the most beautiful natural and historic sites: we will visit and photograph six out of seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites present in the country.

Croatia offers diverse culture, great food, ancient walled towns and medieval castles. We will visit baroque city of Varazdin, Veliki Tabor and Trakoscan castles, Roman amphitheatre in Pula (one of six largest surviving Roman arenas in the world) and finish our trip in the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ – the walled city of Dubrovnik. Our journey will take us through rugged mountains and natural jewels such as the Plitvice Lakes National Park, with 16 turquoise lakes, hundreds of inter-connected waterfalls, and spectacular karst formations.

Here is a two-minute video with images from places we will explore on the tour (make sure the sound on your viewing device is turned on):
