If you've researched Croatia, then you know we've got a long, complicated and colorful history.
Beginning at Veliki Tabor castle, you can listen to the sad but gripping tale of Veronika Desinić. The oldest tower dates from the 12th century, while its round pillars cast interesting shadows to photograph. But above all, photographing the castle from higher ground is very attractive.
Continuing on to Trakošćan castle, a gem from the Medieval era, we'll explore a fully restored building from the 13th century perched atop a hill. The museum within illustrates the way of life, while the lake beneath offers opportunities for mirror images.
After working up an appetite and soothing it with local gastronomy, we will head out to the former capital of Croatia, the baroque town of Varaždin. Its preserved castle and well-kept old town will surely offer an incentive for your photography.
During your tour, listen as your guide points out the best angles for your photography. Perhaps master a few new techniques along the way, then return in comfort to your departure point in Zagreb to conclude your tour.
All levels of photography experience are welcome, the tour leader will adapt to your knowledge and needs. Bring comfortable shoes for walking. Stone surfaces may be slippery if wet. Your camera bag tripod and any other equipment should not be too heavy or large. Avoid rolling photo bags, use smaller backpacks. Polarizing and ND filters, as well as macro lenses are welcome, but not necessary. Tour can be customized to offer sunrise photography above Veliki Tabor castle.
