The Wells of Zagora

Split-Dalmatia County


Long ago, inhabitants of the villages and settlements across Dalmatinska Zagora built wells for the storage of rainwater. In a region where porous karst topography impedes the retention of water on the ground’s surface, wells were the only means of storing water during periods of drought. These wells are 2—8 meters (6.5–26 feet) deep, and were built in clusters for easier maintenance. In the 19th century, when cisterns were introduced, most of these wells were abandoned. Nowadays, as a result of the depopulation of Croatia’s rural areas, these wells stand abandoned and forgotten.

Sinjska Alka

Split-Dalmatia County


Young „knights” train every day at the racetrack in Sinj to prepare for the most important event of their year: the Sinjska Alka. In 1715, an army of 60,000 Turks besieged Sinj, but 700 local soldiers heroically defended the city. The Sinjska Alka, a unique equestrian tournament, is an annual celebration of this famous victory. Knights on horseback rush at full gallop to drive an almost 3-meter-long lance through the eye of the „alka,” a metal ring with a 3-centimeter-diameter hole. This 300-year-old tradition is on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List.

Dear Readers,

I was very pleased to receive an announcement from author Davor Rostuhar about the new edition of the photo-monograph National Geographic - Croatia from Above. This new release marks the continuation of his successful project, after its initial editions and exhibition that visited several Croatian cities. The best testament to the quality of the photographs is the popularity of the exhibition, as well as the chosen brand of National Geographic Magazine.  Publishing with National Geographic Magazine is further confirmation of the high esthetic criteria that the author fully meets. Using the universal language of photography, a story is told about Croatia’s beauty and natural and architectural diversity. When seen from above, a new perspective is presented, one which is otherwise, in daily life, unperceivable. I congratulate the team whose idea and achievement represent our homeland and inspire many of us to see its beauty from a new perspective. These photographs are a most beautiful invitation – come and get to know Croatia!

Sincerely,
Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović
President of the Republic of Croatia, 2015

Dear Reader,

It was my pleasure to accept the Club for Expedition and Culture’s invitation to sponsor a project in which the beauty of Croatia would be presented from an aerial perspective via photographs taken by Davor Rostuhar. I am especially pleased by the fact that the quality of these photographs has been recognized by the publishers of the internationally renowned National Geographic Magazine, the Croatian edition of which featured some of these images in major stories presenting Croatia’s varied regions. I believe the book that you are holding in your hands, and its associated exhibition, will contribute greatly to the promotion of our homeland as a place with a wealth of natural beauty and a rich architectural and cultural heritage. Photographing Croatia from above enhances the value of this wealth and lifts it to a higher dimension.
With this, I would like to congratulate the entire creative team. They have overcome numerous obstacles to attain their goal: to publish a photo-monograph that will be enjoyed around the world, intrigue readers, and encourage many to visit Croatia. With the hope that this exceptional project will be recognized by any and all institutions responsible for tourism and the promotion of Croatia, I wish the photo-monograph Croatia from Above much success. I also hope that the author, Mr. Davor Rostuhar, will capture many more exciting and creative photographs for years to come.

Sincerely,

Dr. Ivo Josipović

President of the Republic of Croatia 2010-2014

Had I the eyes
of a hawk and
the white wings
of a swan

Editor-in-Chief,

Photo by Rebecca Hale

I understand Icarus and his desire for flight. I don't understand the Creator–why he didn't give us wings so that we could freely explore the third dimension, like birds. The view from the heights offers a completely different and novel perspective. It both figuratively and literally broadens our horizons.
I have often imagined what it would be like to fly, to observe from above all that is happening, and to see what the world I walk upon really looks like. This was one of the reasons why I took up mountaineering: to see the world below from the mountains’ heights. But that wasn’t enough. I sought a monograph that presented views of our homeland from the air, but I couldn’t find any. So, when I became the Editor-in-Chief of National Geographic Croatia, I started to think about filling this void. But how to make this come true, and with whom?
Then, I met Davor Rostuhar. At the time, he was a young, long-haired fellow; in love with travel, photography, and writing; and full of élan, ideas, and energy. So, he began writing articles for National Geographic Croatia. In one issue of our magazine, I described him as “the greatest adventurer of all photographers, and the greatest photographer of all adventurers” in Croatia. He, too, had thought about presenting a bird’s eye view of our country. And that is how this adventure in aerial photography began—on the yellow-bordered cover of National Geographic Croatia.
Our first published report, in November 2007, presented Dalmatinska Zagora from above. The photographs seemed to show an unusual, hitherto unknown fantasy world - not the Zagora with which we were familiar. “Incredible!” said our readers. “We were there, but we didn’t see Zagora like that!” That is what makes the view from above so unique. Many qualities of the world—their shapes, colors, and unique characteristics—are missed when seen only from the ground. Seven years after that first article, and after we had gone on to present Dalmatia, Istria, Slavonia, and Croatia’s mountains in similar fashion in subsequent issues, the time came to compile all this work into a single monograph, Croatia from Above. It is the first exclusively bird’s eye view of our homeland, a one of a kind, magical, and utterly unique work, proudly framed in National Geographic’s famous yellow border.
It may sound immodest, but I can say with complete confidence that this is one of the greatest photography projects ever undertaken in Croatia—if not the greatest. It has unfolded over the course of seven years, cost over a million kunas, and has captured Croatia’s beauty, landscapes, and sights like never before. It is not only a photographic record of scenic panoramas, but also of ancient customs and rituals, pilgrimages and gatherings, commercial and leisure activities, and historical and architectural treasures. In addition to celebrating our country’s history and unique cultural heritage, it has captured the beauty of our remotest and most-protected regions, and has revealed for the first time some magical moments in our homeland, such as how the illuminated towers of Zagreb’s cathedral rise above the fog over the sleeping city. Like a mosaic comprised of photographs instead of tiles, this monograph tells a story about the little country of Croatia, and displays in vivid colors the wealth that once was hidden in its embrace. The view from above reveals all that our homeland has to offer, celebrates what Croatians should be proud of, and emphasizes what we should protect for all time.
I am tremendously proud of the results of this enormous endeavor, which would not have been possible to attain without Davor’s will, persistence, and talent. To capture these images, Davor flew on planes, paragliders, and balloons; he even used unmanned aerial vehicles. He photographed through the winter and the summer, in sun and fog, at night and day, at sunrise and sunset. He frequently returned to the same spots in order to capture them from the perfect angle, in the ideal light and color. Before I met Davor, someone had described him to me as “a peculiar young man.” This is true—in all the best ways. He is a unique, tenacious, original, inspired, and highly talented photographer. Thanks to these personal qualities, we have been lucky enough to enjoy the many wonderful, profound articles he has posted from various corners of the world. Now, we have this unique portrayal of Croatia from above. He makes the wishes expressed in the old Croatian song come true, for with him we can fly on the wings of a swan and see with the eyes of a hawk. So, let’s take off with him, and begin a tour of Croatia that, until now, was reserved exclusively for birds and angels.

ABOUT THE CLUB
FOR EXPEDITION
AND CULTURE

The Club for Expedition and Culture (Klub za ekspedicionizam i kulturu, or KEK for short), is a nonprofit, independent association founded in 2003 in Zagreb. During the first 10 years of the club’s history, expeditions to little-known and remote regions of the world were its main focus. Some of these expeditions included:
- a one-month trek through the Himalayas in Nepal to Mustang, the former Kingdom of Lo.
- a paddling expedition down the San Pedro River in Guatemala, which led to the discovery of a cave containing 2000-year-old Mayan artifacts.
- a paddling and trekking expedition through the primordial jungles of Madidi National Park in the Bolivian Amazon.
- an 820-kilometer journey up the Sepik River, and a 270-kilometer expedition on foot through the remotest jungles of Papua New Guinea.
- a 23-day trek through the Bolivian Amazon to track jaguars and to study their habitat.
- a three-month study in the remote regions of West Papua, Indonesia, of the Dani, Yali, and Korowai tribes—and of the Banggatung clan, which had not previously encountered the outside world.
- a five-month journey through Western Africa, which included crossing the Sahara on motorcycle and trekking through the Land of the Dogon in Mali.
- an ascent to the highest tropical volcano—the 6,425-meter-high Coropuna Peak in Peru.
- an eight-month journey by motorcycle from Zagreb to Cape Town along the eastern part of the African continent.
- an expedition to Tanzania in order to study the Hadzabe, a Bushmen hunter-gatherer society.

The club has presented over a hundred multimedia lectures in Croatia and neighboring countries, published four books, developed numerous articles for the National Geographic Croatia and Meridijani magazines, and held several exhibitions and events.
KEK’s largest event was the multimedia/multisensory exhibition “Around the World in Half an Hour.” The club partnered with the Fifth Gymnasium in Zagreb where, for 12 days in June 2012, the school’s classrooms were transformed into a fully-immersive multicultural experience.
Twelve classrooms were selected to represent 12 themes that represented various aspects of the world. The themes were categorized broadly into “Cities” (e.g. Venice and Damascus), “Countries” (e.g. Bolivia and Japan), “Regions” (e.g. the Sahara Desert and Southeast Asia), and “Concepts” (e.g. tribes of New Guinea and world metropolises). Photographs from different KEK expeditions were exhibited in each classroom. In addition to these visual components, cultural concepts were also conveyed by sound, scent, taste, and feel. For example, in the classroom dedicated to “Tribes of New Guinea,” the feeling of the jungle was conveyed by the presence of tropical plants, and genuine Stone Age tools could be handled. In the “Sahara” classroom, visitors could feel the dry, desert heat (provided by portable heaters) while sitting on the sand under a nomad’s tent. In the classroom dedicated to Japan, a geisha performed a tea ceremony.
Each day, workshops featuring cultural themes from around the world were held in the school’s gymnasium. Visitors could learn to play African drums, fold origami cranes, explore the art of Brazilian capoiera, write in Chinese calligraphy, learn the basics of Arabic, and try their skill at Irish dancing.
The goal of the project was to teach visitors—especially younger attendees—in fun and novel ways about various countries and cultures from around the world; as well as to convey the message that international travel is a great way for people to learn about one another, and rewards the adventurous with rich, first-hand cultural knowledge.
Over a hundred members of KEK and students of the Fifth Gymnasium volunteered for the project, and over 10,000 visitors attended the exhibition over those 12 days, most of them students and young adults. KEK wishes to develop this innovative concept even further.

ABOUT THE PROJECT
“CROATIA FROM ABOVE”

The Club for Expedition and Culture organized a series of expeditions to explore and get to better know Croatia. Members trekked alongside and kayaked down several rivers (the Kupa, Zrmanja, and Cetina) from their sources to their mouths, hiked through mountains, and paddled in the Adriatic Sea. The goal was to document Croatia’s cultural and environmental heritage, to present the findings to the public for educational purposes, and to encourage the protection of those riches.
Unlike many of the places KEK had explored previously, Croatia is a small and relatively developed nation without many “unknown” regions. So, what new things could be discovered here?
In 2006, during an expedition down the Cetina River between the cliffs of Dalmatinska Zagora, the idea of getting an aerial view arose. Thanks to the perspective offered by a small sports plane, the Cetina was seen in a new light. Areas difficult or impossible to reach by road or by foot were revealed. Numerous landscapes covered in vegetation and wetlands were documented, shattering the common stereotype about the supposedly bleak karst geology of Dalmatinska Zagora. It then became clear that, from above, not only was a brand-new view of sites of cultural and natural importance possible, but outright discovery of valuable new sites was occurring as well.
Editors of the prestigious international magazine National Geographic were pleased with the photographs taken during this survey, and thus began a multi-year collaboration wherein National Geographic Croatia and KEK sought to document Croatia from the sky.
Even after the sports plane used during the exploration of Dalmatinska Zagora crashed a few days after the photo shoot (luckily, the pilot—the same one who had flown the plane during the Dalmatinska Zagora photo shoot—survived), the photographer was not discouraged. After the first article about Dalmatinska Zagora was published, aerial photographs of Istria, Dalmatia, Slavonia, the mountains of Croatia, and Croatia’s midlands followed. Results from each expedition were presented in the pages of National Geographic Croatia.
In 2011, as the “Croatia from Above” project intensified, photographer Davor Rostuhar flew all over Croatia. He mostly utilized small sports planes, although helicopters, motorized hang gliders, and hot air balloons were also used in order to fill in the missing pieces of the mosaic. The goal was to see and document everything: Croatia’s islands, mountains, rivers, wetlands, and cities.
In 2013, a new technology for aerial photography was incorporated into the project: unmanned aerial vehicles. These devices offered new ways of seeing natural and cultural sites. Sports planes and helicopters are not allowed to fly less than 300 meters above the ground, whereas unmanned aerial vehicles are not allowed above this limit. Thus, manned and unmanned flights perfectly complement one another. The remote-controlled aerial vehicle afforded the photographer new eyes with which to observe in greater detail what could not be seen up close from a plane—the textures of canyon walls, trees, and bell towers; even eggs in a stork's nest.
With this collection of 200 photographs of Croatia from above, the Republic of Croatia’s varied cultural and natural heritage is captured from a new vantage point.
The Club for Expedition and Culture is guided by the belief that things must first be explored and documented before we can truly begin to get to know them. Once we get to know them, we can understand them. Once we understand them, we can love them. Once we love them, we can protect them. The intention of this project is to contribute to the public’s understanding of Croatia’s many cultural, traditional, and natural treasures—and that this, in turn, will lead to the protection of those treasures.
This ambitious project would not have been possible without recognition by and support from over a hundred different institutions in the Republic of Croatia. Sponsors and partners included Croatia’s president; local ministries, counties, cities, and municipalities; companies and organizations from the public and private sector; tourist boards; public institutions; sponsors; and media partners.

With this, the Club for Expedition and Culture expresses its deep and heartfelt gratitude to all!

Rovinj

Istria County


Just as people once leaned on each other for support as they built Rovinj, so do Rovinj’s houses today. Rovinj was founded not by royalty, but by fishermen, land laborers, stone carvers, and seafarers. Until the Second World War, the city was home to equal numbers of Italians and Croats, but by the middle of the 20th century most Italians had left the city. In the years that followed, refugees from the Croatian War of Independence and the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as wealthy people from all over the world, settled here. Rovinj has been embraced by Croatia’s artistic community, and those who live here claim it is „the most mediterranean of all mediterranean cities.”

Harvest

Brod-Posavina County


Agriculture was Croatia’s leading industry until the middle of the 20th century. About a hundred years ago, 80% of the population was employed in agricultural professions. Today, just 2.2% of the working population is employed in the agriculture, forestry, and fishing industries. Over the past 20 years, Croatia’s food production has fallen by about 30%, whereas it has risen about 33% throughout the rest of the world. Although Croatia can produce enough food to meet its own demands, half of the country’s agricultural food goods are imported.

Biograd Marina

Zadar County


The Biograd Boat Show is the largest exhibition of marine vessels in Croatia, and each year the number of both ships and visitors increases. Nautical tourism makes up a little more than 3% of total tourism revenue in Croatia. Croatia has 106 marinas, in which a 4% growth in revenues has been recorded each year. Slightly less than half of these marinas are also permitted to raise a „blue flag,” which signifies that it is an especially environmentally friendly marina.

Photo-monograph
"National Geographic –
CROATIA FROM ABOVE"


The photo-monograph National Geographic—Croatia from Above is Croatia’s first photo-monograph sponsored by National Geographic, the most prestigious global brand in photography.
 

This lavish edition contains 200 photographs printed in 18.9'' x 12.6'' (48 cm x 32 cm) format. Created during a seven-year exploration of Croatia from an aerial perspective, these photographs portray familiar natural and cultural attractions in a hitherto unseen way, and unveil new sites of value that had been lying hidden until now. The photographs have been beautifully arranged in a carefully planned layout in order to best showcase and celebrate Croatia’s great wealth and diversity. Each photograph is accompanied by a text describing the geologic, historic, economic, ecological, and cultural aspects of Croatia captured in that image. Collectively, they paint a unique portrait of Croatia, depicting its position in the broader context of space and time. The book is further enriched with texts written by Davor Rostuhar, author, photographer, and project leader; by Hrvoje Prćić, Editor-in-Chief of National Geographic Croatia; and Dr. Ivo Josipović, President of the Republic of Croatia. Two editions, one in English and one in Croatian, were published by the Club for Expedition and Culture in June 2014.

Neretva Delta

Dubrovnik-Neretva County


Common dishes of the Neretva Delta were once prepared from what could be found there in abundance: frogs, fish, coots (a duck-like water bird), and shells. However, during the past half century, the ecological situation has drastically worsened. Fish are being overharvested, the soil and water is being poisoned with dangerous pesticides, and waste is being dumped in the channels. Older residents recall the use of traditional methods to hunt birds and fish. Today, eels are killed with electricity, shrimp with poison, and moray eels with blue vitriol. For these reasons, and others, a proposal has been initiated to declare the Neretva Delta a nature park.

Lake Bajer near Fužine

Primorje-Gorski Kotar County


Some lakes in Gorski Kotar, such as Lake Bajer near Fužine, become arctic winter wonderlands that draw extreme kayakers for training. Adventure tourism has been on the rise these last few decades, and some experts claim that this kind of tourism will one day outperform „regular” mass tourism. Croatia tops the list as a high-potential country for adventure tourism.

Lake Peruća

Split-Dalmatia County


Lake Peruća is the second largest reservoir in Croatia. Its waters feed one of five hydroelectric power plants built on the Cetina River. About 80% of energy in the world comes from crude oil, natural gas, and coal; 5% from nuclear power plants; and 8% from renewable resources. Since Croatia is not rich in coalmines, 46% of its energy comes from hydroelectric plants. As a result, Croatia uses more renewable resources than the European average. However, power plants built on reservoirs are not completely benign. The dams associated with them can flood valleys. They can also interrupt the natural flow of rivers, which can potentially damage the environment. Run-of-the-river hydroelectric plants produce less energy, but their impact on the environment is much less severe.

With featherlike ease we will cruise the endless expanses of silence.

We will be the peace of the cosmos.
A moment of eternity.

Oyster farms of Ston

Dubrovnik-Neretva County


The bay of mali Ston hosts the largest oyster cultivation facilities in the Adriatic. Of its 760 hectares (1,878 acres), farming is possible on only 460 hectares (1,137 acres), and at this time only about 10% of that area is used for cultivation. Cultivation of larger quantities of the European oyster (Ostreu edulis) is a complicated process and not easy to achieve. In other parts of the world, invasive species of oysters are taking over. Fortunately, in the bay of mali Ston, the European oyster is the only species present. Serving as the main capital of oyster production, oyster farming is showing potential.

Moreška

Korčula


The moreška of Korčula is considered by many ethnographers to be the oldest authentic sword dance still performed in the mediterranean region. The most popular theory states that the moreška was invented in Spain in the 12th century to commemorate a victory over the moors and the Christian Reconquista. Widespread throughout the mediterranean during medieval times, today the tradition lives on only in Korčula where it is deeply embedded in the identity of Korčula’s inhabitants. This dynamic and energetic sword dance is performed hundreds of times each year for tourists, but on the 29th of July—the day of Saint Theodore, the patron saint of Korčula—the moreška is performed exclusively for the residents of Korčula.

The Labyrinths of Cres

Primorje-Gorski Kotar County


Tramuntana Forest lies in the northern part of the island of Cres. The eco-center in Beli is dedicated to caring for the surrounding environment and, especially, its population of griffon vultures. The staff has also created trails in the surrounding woods, and a system of labyrinths within the forest’s seven meadows. According to the philosophy of the sanctuary, people have strayed from nature and from themselves—they need help to find their way back. They believe these labyrinths assist in one’s journey back to oneself, and will enable one to rediscover the original spirit of nature.

Predivna izložba. Ovih je dana Dom HDLU mjesto gdje čovjek definitivno može pronaći pozitivnu energiju i inspiraciju. Projekcija je poseban doživljaj. Uživali smo pridružiti se djeci, mladi par i dvojici starijih gospodina u trčkaranju među oblacima.

Nakon ove predivne izložbe odlučili smo ostvariti san… obići Hrvatsku na neki nov način, doživjeti svoju zemlju kako još nismo i živjeti ovdje sretni zauvijek! I dobiti posao u National Geographicu! :)

Uspio sam se posvađati i pomiriti s curom za vrijeme izložbe. Toliko o emocionalnom naboju izložbe.

Izložbu bi trebalo pogledati više puta za potpuni doživljaj. Kupila sam knjigu, dobila posvetu i doći ću opet. Čestitam Davore na ovom velikom projektu.

Olive harvest

Zadar County


The history of olive cultivation in Croatia stretches back to the time of Greek colonization in the 4th century BCE. Today, such cultivation is deeply rooted in the economy and culture of the entire coastal region. Olive harvesting is a community event; entire families gather to participate. After harvesting, olives must remain in storage for a while before they can be crushed in the oil mill. The quality of olive oil depends on when the olives are harvested, how the olives are crushed, how much time has passed from harvest to milling, and the manner in which the oil is extracted.
