Following the Footsteps of Winnetou
Crystal blue lake in the national park Plitvičcka Jezera and the breathtaking cliffs of Paklenica National Park, beautiful waterfalls in Krka National Park, mystical mountain tops that rise above the river Zrmanja’s, the canyon in Velebit’s Nature Park, surrounding the area of Benkovac and Raštevićc, the rivers Cetina and Radman’s, water mills, and the area surrounding the town of Vrlika… there are rarely so many diverse natural beauties in one place in the world as there are in the small country of Croatia.
So it is of no surprise that in the 1960’s these exact locations were chosen for the making of the movies about the Indian chief Winnetou, written by the famous German writer Karl May. The locations preserved their beauty as they were in their original structure and they represent the most stunning landscapes of our beautiful country. These locations were used, and still are in use, for making many Croatian and foreign films.
In this week you will have the chance to meet the Winnetou film crew members (character actors, stuntmen, etc.) and you will be able to go horseback riding and shoot bows and arrows. For you, we have prepared a dinner in nature with a camp fire, barbeque and country music.
You will be accompanied through the entire excursion program by guides that know perfectly the locations where the films were made
We are awaiting the confirmation of our honorary guest for "Winnetou Days 2011", Maria Versini, who played Winnetou's sister in the film.
