The Sava Floodplains - Croatia's secret paradise

  • Croatias beautiful landscapes - The Sava floodplains


    Natural river landscapes have almost completely disappeared in Europe: The major rivers have almost all been transformed into channelled waterways. It is extremely rare to find a union comprising of a river, flooding area and cultivated land, as is the case with the huge Save floodplains of Croatia, where meadows and pastures of around 100.000 hectares have survived the destruction other European river valleys have faced. Here there is a landscape, in which mankind has always lived and secured a living, side by side with water. Flooding is a natural phenomenon in Lonjsko Polie, which determines life and provides a unique diversity of species.

  • The Baltic forest and moorland


    The wide, often untouched wilderness of the Baltic hinterland is home to many animals. More than 350 brown bears live in the primeval forests of Alutaguse. In the spring, the Soomaa National Park transforms into a huge lake. Europe's widest waterfall is located in Latvia. In the beginning of May, vimba bream follow the course of the River Venta. The hardly 50-centimetre-long fish have to overcome a 400-metre-long rock barrier in order to reach their spawning grounds.
    The Baltics are rich in superlatives: a fifth of the world's spotted eagle stocks breed here. One of the largest courtship arenas for snipes is located here in the floodplains of Latvia. More than 1000 wolves go on the hunt in Latvia's forests. Lithuania is the land of storks - with over 13.000 pairs, no other region in the Baltic States has more white storks.

  • Secrets of the Flooded Forest - Danube National Park - The Secrets of Nature


    After beginning in Vienna, the Danube riverbank forests extend to the gates of Bratislava, linking the two capitals like a green ribbon, forming a unique wildlife habitat in the heart of Europe. A few years ago a 36 kilometer section was turned into a national park that now protects the last undeveloped stretch of the Danube river and also the last riparian zone of its size in Central Europe.

  • The most beautiful landscapes of the world


    This collection of short films takes the audience on an eye candy trip around the world.
    The flight around the globe begins with a visit to the ice bears in the Wapusk National Park in Northern Canada. Empathetic footage of newborn ice bears is succeeded by images of turquoise-coloured water cascades in the world famous Croatian National Park at the Plitvica Lakes. In Ethiopia, the so-called bleeding heart monkeys, or Geladas, give us insights into their lives in the pack on the high plateaus of the Simien National Park.
    From her, it's off way down to the Earth's south and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. The 1500 species of fish, 350 stone coral and 80 soft coral types are all endangered by acute coral bleaching. Before long, these images may only exist on film.
    Now, the viewer is taken from this colourful and gigantic, subterranean massif to the kingdom of the stone giants: in the Alps. The fascination of mountain sculptures continues at China's Li River. The stars here however are the cormorants that have been trained to fish for humans. Off the coasts of South Africa, fishing looks completely different, when millions of sardines fall victim to predatory fish, including dolphins and sharks and even Cape gannets.

  • Croatias Secret Animal Paradise | Free Documentary


    Every year in the middle of Croatia, like clockwork, nature repeats itself: after the annual snowmelt, a huge flood wave spills out of the Alps toward Zagreb and Belgrade. This leads to an increase in the River Sava's water levels of some ten meters. The contents of more than ten billion bathtubs floods an area the size of Lake Constance, often for months on end, yet the Croatian and Serbian capitals are spared a flood disaster. One of the reasons for this is the fact that the Sava is able to flow unhindered. The annual floods create a natural retention reservoir for flood control: bordering the Sava is a natural paradise, exceptional in Central Europe. In the species-rich, alluvial flood plains of the last major meadow landscape of the continent, enormous predatory fish like the catfish lie in wait for prey. Fish catch birds. Birds catch fish. Horses bath in the waters. A riotous paradise with an abundant and diverse animal life. A rare view that shows what natural floodplains mean, when nature takes precedence over profit.

  • Japans Secret Water garden - David Attenborough National Geographic Documentary 2020 HD


    Japan's Secret Water garden - David Attenborough [National Geographic Documentary 2020 HD]
    Imagine a realm where the seasons' rhythms rule - where centuries of agriculture and fishing have re-shaped the land, yet where people and nature remain in harmony. Sangoro Tanaka lives in just such a paradise. At 83, he's a guardian of one of Japan's secret water gardens. Here - over a thousand years - towns and villages have developed a unique system to make springs and water part of their homes. From inside these homes, the streams pour into Japan's largest freshwater lake, Lake Biwa - an area 5 times the size of Paris - near the ancient capital of Kyoto. This is a habitat so precious the Japanese have a special word for it: Satoyama - villages where mountains give way to plains. They are exceptional environments essential to both the people who maintain them and to the wildlife that now share them.

  • Arlberg - The Hidden Paradise - The Secrets of Nature


    Snow masses pile up in abundance on the deep snow-covered slopes. The wind has created bizarre snowdrifts on the steep mountain ridges, and further below, the Swiss pine carry the weight of this sparkling splendor. Arlberg is the embodiment of an idyllic winter and the cradle of alpine skiing. However, this famous ski resort that connects Tyrol with Vorarlberg, offers a lot more than expected. A bit of untouched nature has been preserved in the hardly accessible valleys and the cliffy massifs.

  • Cocos Island - The mysterious island in the Pacific - FULL VERSION!!


    Unfortunately, the previously uploaded version was not complete: It aborts in minute 22. Here finally is the complete documentary.
    Have fun with it! :)

    Coconut Island protrudes from the Pacific Ocean as the peak of a lone volcano, far off the Costa Rican coast. At the end of the 18th century, the English author Robert Louis Stevenson is said to have received the inspiration for his novel „Treasure Island“ here.

    The tiny island comprises just 25 sqm² and is covered by an impenetrable jungle. Numerous streams, waterfalls and gorges epitomise the world‘s largest uninhabited rain forest island. Due to its isolation, unique flora and fauna have developed here. Today, as a national park and world natural heritage, the island is closely supervised by park rangers.

    The outstanding underwater world surrounding the island abounds with marine fauna of every description. Hardly any other destination is as well-known for its countless large fish varieties, especially hammerhead, reef and offshore sharks. The film‘s author submerged to depths up to 400 meters on board the „Deep Sea“, a modern research submarine. During the dive, he ucceeded in shooting material of rare deep sea fish and shark species, which have never before been sighted near Coconut Island.

  • Croatia - The pearl at the Mediterranean


    The second part of the journey from Croatia goes from the island of Vis to Dubrovnik. At the time of communist Yugoslavia, but also long before, Vis was restricted due to its excellent strategic position. Also Tito's partisan army had its headquarters in a cave in Mount Hum. The waters around Vis count to the most fishy of the Adriatic. Far above its regional boundaries, however, Vis is neither known for its wine nor for the rich fish rich in the sea.

    The Blue Grotto of Bisevo is the main reason for many tourists coming from Split or from the surrounding islands. Makarska is the most famous tourist resort on the Croatian Riviera. After the war in Croatia in the 1990s, the city was modernized with great effort. The historic old town experienced an addition to new hotels, restaurants and shops. With an area of ​​396 square kilometers, Brac is the third largest island of the Adriatic and the largest of Croatia.

    The goldene Horn, a sandhorn about 300 m long, is the tourist landmark. However, Brac is known worldwide, especially among the handworkers. The white house in Washington / USA was built from the snow-white Bracer limestone. Another important place is the island of Korcula. The parents of Marco Polo, the most important seafarer of European history, lived here. Whether her famous son was born here, is not handed down. Highlight of this part of the trip to Croatia is the visit of the city of Dubrovnik, the city of churches and monasteries.

  • Sabah: Malaysian Borneo


    In the midst of the Indo-Pacific region lies Borneo, the third-largest is-land of the world. Respectively almost half of Borneo belongs to Indonesia and Malaysia.
    Borneo's northern part is called Sabah and is Malaysian. Sabah is covered by dense rain forest.
    Access into the green heart is only possible by driving a boat upstream on big rivers like the Kinabatangan.
    Unique animals and plants remained undiscovered for a long time such as the droll nose monkeys or lovely orchids. The Bornean orangutan lives only here and on the island of Sumatra. So does the endangered Sumatran rhinoceros. All of the animals share the jungle with the natives, like the people of the Murut tribe. Just one hundred years ago, the Murut still were dangerous head hunters. Only a warrior who beheaded an enemy, was honoured as a full man. But also in Sabah time goes by. The idea of living together has changed dramatically. Today Sabah is a religious melting pot. All major religions coexist peaceful. Buddhist temples, Islamic mosques and Christian churches are part of the urban image of course. This film presents an Asian region where people successfully handle the balancing act between nature, traditional culture and the modern world.

  • Rivers of Croatia, documentary film


    Maybe no other European country has such diverse, yet so preserved rivers as Croatia. Adriatic coast is world-known, with crystal clear sea, rocky coastline with ancient stone towns like Dubrovnik…The sea is however not the only richness of Croatia. Its rivers are surely one of the most important values. From murky and slow lowland rivers that flood huge floodplains; through short and fast mountainous rivers that flush on rapids; then rivers in Karlovac region with travertine (tufa) waterfalls and slow, almost marshy parts with lush vegetation; quiet rivers in karst polje that are lost in the dark underground only to spring at other place; until big Adriatic rivers in deep barren canyons with waterfalls, that meet the sea in narrow estuaries like Zrmanja or wide delta-like Neretva. Since they are diverse and untouched they are oases of life containing preserved biotopes with rare and endangered species on the European level. Because of their particularity, many endemic species live in them; among fish species in karst rivers around 15 are endemic.

    On the edge of the wilderness, in the middle of the mountains of Velebit, there is an international volunteer camp. Young people from all over the world are there to protect bears. Traditionally, the province of Slavonia is also multi-cultural. For centuries, the fertile Pannonian Plain has attracted people from all over Europe. In some villages, more than 20 nations live together peacefully and maintain their own traditions, languages ​​and hairstyles. In the border area with Serbia and Hungary extends the wetland Kopacki Rit, one of the most important wetlands in Europe.

    A paradise for many animal and plant species, including the rare white-tailed eagle. Nowhere on the continent so many pairs of the great European bird of prey nest in such a small space. In Croatia, many people still live in harmony with nature. Some find their way back to ancient traditions, like a fig farmer on the island of Vis, or they help out when nature did not mean it so well. And the stork father of the Save has been taking the stork lady Malena with her every winter for 17 years because she can no longer fly south with her partner because of an injury.

    The deepest canyon in Europe, the continent's last primeval forests, important cultural sites and a unique diversity of species - it is an area with spectacular natural phenomena full of undiscovered beauty. The five-part documentary series The Balkan Express is a visually stunning discovery trip through mysterious landscapes and untouched wilderness in the middle of Europe. The stations are Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Serbia.

  • Croatia - Land of Rivers


    No country in Europe has such divers, yet preserved rivers.

    Croatia harbours incredible beauty. The beauty of its sea and ancient coastal towns is common knowledge.

    Moreover, Croatia has exceptional rivers, from lowland rivers like Drava and Danube, with their gravel bars, beautiful sidebranches and wide floodplains, to fast mountain rivers with rapids, paradise for rafters and anglers.

    Then, there are karstic rivers with natural barriers and impressive waterfalls. Barriers grow from travertine - living rock. Between barriers river slowly flows, it is wetland in a rocky environment, oasis in the deep canyon, accessible only by a boat.

    Karstic rivers end up in Adriatic sea as estuaries or delta.

  • Croatia as the next country to join the euro area? | Erste Group


    Currently, three countries have officially expressed interest in joining the euro area: Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania. The first two have made concrete steps to join the EA – Croatia has committed to a euro adoption strategy and Bulgaria started informal negotiations to enter ERM-2 and the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM). Romania is still only at the level of political declarations, and through real policies actually drifted away from accepting the euro target.

    In addition to original Maastricht criteria, candidate countries for euro adoption must also enter the European Banking Union – Single Supervisory and Resolution Mechanisms (SSM and SRM). That goes hand-in-hand with asset quality review (AQR) processes and bank stress tests. The assets of six Bulgarian banks are already being reviewed; the AQR process is to be completed in summer 2019. EU authorities earlier suggested that Bulgaria should strengthen supervision of both banking and non-banking sectors (insurance, pension funds). Legislature about money laundering and bankruptcy should also improve. All these aspects have to improve before the ECB agrees that Bulgaria can enter the ERM-2 regime.

    Croatia might already this year ask European institutions for closer cooperation in joining the banking union. The process might be easier than in the Bulgarian case, as the Croatian central bank undertook stress tests for local banks back in 2014; hence compliance with SSM and SRM should be smoother. Also, the level of economic convergence is higher, so Croatia has in our view a greater chance of being the next country to join the euro area than Bulgaria or Romania.
