Croatia Like You’ve Never Seen It Before (Unless You’re A Bird)

If you’re a bird, you can close this browser down as you’ve seen these ridiculously stunning photos of Croatia before. For those of us walking on two legs, with a massive bucket list of travel wishes, keep reading.

My newfound discovery here in Croatia is drone photography. It provides you with a view of Croatia that you simply can’t see for yourself, that is, unless, as I said, you’re a bird or you own your own plane.

Before you gaze at Croatia, as you’ve never seen it before, I’d like to thank Siniša from Aerial Croatia, the company behind these photos, for allowing me to share them with you all.


The island of Korcula is one of the greenest islands along the Adriatic, thanks to the vineyards and olive groves. Small beaches and quiet coves form its southern coast. You can get to the island via ferry from Split, Dubrovnik, or Orebic on the Peljesac peninsula.

Island Proizd, Near Vela Luka, Korcula

Green and blue have always been 2 of my favorite colors. This is lucky given my new life in Croatia consists of a lot of it.

Vineyards On The Peljesac Peninsula

Many traditional grape varieties still survive in Croatia, like those grown on Peljesac, which makes delicious Croatian wine exported all over the world.

Adriatic Sea

Ahhh, the glorious Adriatic. Enough said.

Biokovo Mountain & Pine Forest

Biokovo is protected as a nature park, and Siniša tells me that when the weather is very clear, it is possible to see Monte Gargano in Italy, 252 km away from the top of the mountain.

Known as the ‘pearl of the Adriatic,’ Dubrovnik is famous for a reason, and it, not just her beauty. Take a look at what else you can do while in Dubrovnik and where you can eat & drink like a local.

A small tourist village, Pakoštane, is just 30 kilometers from the town of Zadar. Set in a beautiful location on the bay with a sandy beach, surrounded by pine forest.

Islet Stupe

One of the 525 in the Adriatic Sea. Islet Stupe sure it pretty.

The town has a long history that dates back to 360 BC, when the Illyrians inhabited it.

  5. These are such awesome shots! We’ve loved almost everywhere we’ve visited in Croatia.

      1. We just weren’t impressed with Plitvice Lakes. It was disappointing after all the hype we’d heard.

        1. Are you serious, the place is amazing. Did you get lost or something. I’ve never seen such beautiful nature anywhere.

  6. This is just ridiculous. The whole country is a must-see travel destination. If not this year, I will absolutely make it there soon, and I think this post more than others before helped make my ‘things to do in Croatia’ list, just because it is such a great combo of wilderness and civilization and recreation.

    1. Yeah you get everything here. My fave view is the sea on the left and mountains on the right 🙂 So no horseriding then?

  7. Another GOLD medal deserved !
    Not being a bird*), this is the best way to look from above.

    Tried to fly once, simply started on a two meter high roof.
    The flight very short, the landing horrible, six broken ribs made me decide not to try flying again.
    So thanks SJ, great shots !

    1. OUCH Pim that sounds terrible! Dont thank me, thanks the crew at Aerial Croatia, they have loads more shots in their facebook and Instagram pages. Stay safe – and on the ground xx

  8. These photos are absolutely incredible! Your blog keeps making me want to visit Croatia!!!
