Welcome to Croatia!
I have a rule - in any journey I will go up higher ... From the observation deck and terrace restaurant rooftop unit to something bigger and this ... And it is - a flight on a plane! After all, a really nice place to be seen from above. Of course the internet is filled to overflowing with plastic images of everything removed from the copter, but there are special places that can and need to see yourself! The more that 10-15 minute flight on a small sports plane is quite inexpensive.
This is my first country in the Balkans, where I visited this summer. Now the beginning of August, it's time to work and plan their Indian summer, when the tourists will be much less, and the sea water is as warm as the sun sets and lively. The best time to travel - it is not a hot summer!
If you are aviation enthusiast, the place, which will be discussed today, just be sure to visit Croatia! Aeropark Vrsar - this is a sports flying club and the only aviation museum in the country, which was created exclusively by enthusiasts!
Aeropark Vrsar is a 40-minute drive from Pula and from any hotel on the beach. I flew twice for 10-15 minutes on two types of aircraft.
Private Tomark SD-4 Viper. In this type of aircraft I flew for the first time. This is a double of light-sport aircraft. Inexpressible feeling, but from the perspective of the photographer - a huge spherical glass cockpit gives too much glare.
The usual four-Cessna-172.
Flight details about this. But small deviations are acceptable to your liking. Therefore, learn what you want to see during the flight especially, can be from different angles.
Rovinj. The most beautiful Istrian town ... However, the definition of "the most beautiful" here applies to every other town on the coast, but Rovinj some special. I climbed up to the bell tower of the Cathedral of St. Euphemia the day before the flight, and now saw the city from the board sports aircraft.
The population of this town of 14 thousand people.
Porec (Porec), the largest tourist center of Istria and Croatia, located on the west coast of Istria in the lagoon of the same name 25 km.
In Istria rocky, but almost all along the coast of walking paths and equipped with a very cozy beach. I do not like sand, pebbles prefer, so these beaches are very much like me.
I stayed in one of the hotel chains Laguna - Hotel Laguna Molindrio. Confident modern 4 star. The Laguna has a network of different hotels - from 3 to 5 stars.
On the outer side of the bay is three times the hotel Hotel Laguna Parentium. This hotel is a class above - 5 stars.
While on the coast are many different hotels, but they are surrounded by greenery, there is no wind, very comfortable feeling.
Airfield Vrsar is located on the Berg of this fjord:
Look how beautiful looks runway:
The story about Airpark Museum and handmade aircraft will be the next time, as some photos of the spoiler. It's a club. Books and movies about the aircraft, the ability to make a parachute jump, a nice lounge and a cocktail with a view of the planes. It does not want to leave!
Come and Croatia! This country needs to see one day to fall in love and want to come back again.
