As we are currently in the process of ongoing commercial project we can't escape the feeling that Croatia is gaining a global popularity when it comes to tourists and weddings.
If you are planning a wedding in Croatia take a look what wedding locations we can recommend. Dubrovnik, Split, Trogir, Island Hvar, Rovinj or Plitvice Lakes... you can't miss in this beautiful country! We will give you some fragments of amazing architecture and nature from the eyes of the photographer and cinematographer.
Mediterranean countries have always been interesting to tourists which mostly came from Europe - Germany, Austria, UK, France, Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Switzerland and many others. These days Croatia is bursting with turists from USA, Korea, China and people from all over the world.
Croatia is situated at the Adriatic sea, on a geologically important crossroad of the Central Europe, Southeast Europe, and the Mediterranean.
After the Game of Thrones was filmed in Dubrovnik and after Brad Pitt decided to build luxury villas in Šibenik surroundings we believe that Croatia will be even more popular. He said that Croatia is the most beautiful country
he has ever seen. And we guess he has seen it all?
Even Google owner Larry Page attended the wedding of his brother in-law at the Istria Peninsula in the small city Motovun. More and more couples are deciding to say their “I dos” in Croatia. Its stunning nature and Medieval architecture makes it a perfect place for destination weddings...
Untouched nature, friendly people and especially excellent food and the fresh tap water is something that you will bring back home.
Being so small and having total of 4.5 million inhabitants - half the size of some major American city, emphasises even more the versatile climate and diversity of the nature. Croatia has beautiful mountains just looking over the coastline and such warm to cold climate that gets from 15° Celsius (59° F) to -20° Celsius (-4° F) in winter, in a short distance of only 150 km.When it comes to weddings you can have perfect weather any time of the year, however the period from May to October is what the bride and the groom usually choose.
Surely the most popular city is Dubrovnik, in region of south Dalmatia, a historical city that brings you centuries back. The City Walls, almost 2 km long, exist from 8th century, but the shape of the walls that we see today has been defined in 14th century. Now you know why the Game of Thrones was filmed there.

Split and Trogir
Up north you might consider your wedding in City of Split with the historical Diocletian Palace at the very centre which is also, after Zagreb - the Croatia capital, a second largest city in Croatia.
The city situated 30 km north from Split, which is a must-see, is City of Trogir, an amazing historical place, filled with hundreds of small restaurants with local cousine, historic monuments and churches. Trogir has that special historical vibe you might experience.
Trogir has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites for its Venetian architecture.
National and Nature Parks
Croatia has 8 National Parks and 11 Nature Parks, some of the most popular are National Park Brijuni, National Park Kornati, National Park Krka and of course National Park Plitvice Lakes with its amazing waterfalls protected by UNESCO. A lot of couples plan their wedding under the waterfalls, that is truly an unique experience.
National Park Krka is similar to Plitvice Lakes but it is somewhat smaller. Take a look at this Aerial Reel video containing Krka Waterfall sequences that could be easily incorporated into your wedding video, or as we like to call it the wedding film.

160 km up north there is the City of Rijeka, the largest port in Croatia and nearby small city Opatija with hotels and villas built by Austrians in 19th century that will surely take you back in history.
Take a look the most recent wedding we did in Opatija and the magnificent architecture.

The next stop is the Istria Peninsula, truly Mediterranean area of olive oil and wine. There is a picturesque small town Motovun, with vine cellars and domestic food that you can not miss. Especially the sunrise and the sundown.

And finally, there is Pula, with most preserved Roman Arena in the world and city of Rovinj once part of the Republic of Venetia.
