Two years ago, I was hooked on the first (and the best) season of a TV show True Detective. The setting of this murky anthology crime drama was bogged down in the swamps of Louisiana, and for some reason, I adored it. There was something about the static, but the mysterious scenery, combined with swamp blues that gave me the chills.

In early December last year, my girlfriend and me, along with our two friends, decided to spend one winter Saturday in Vienna – the must-see winter destination, at least since advent is concerned.

Recently I bought a GoPro Hero 4 Session. It was a no-brainer over the Hero 4 Black or Silver costing twice as much, and because I mainly use it on my head while mountain-biking so a lighter camera is always a plus. Regardless, I wanted to try it on the roof of my car. It came with an additional flat mount, and I already have it on my helmet, so I decided to use it and make a time-lapse. I’ve never really done time-lapses (don’t know why), but I’ve decided to give it a go.

Rastoke is a beautiful place near Slunj, where river Slunjcica flows into river Korana. It is well known for its well preserved mills and few fantastic waterfalls. Sometimes called The Small Lakes of Plitvice, it emphasizes the true beauty of the place.

The Battle of Samobor (Bitka kod Samobora) held place on March 1st, 1441, somewhere around Samobor. On one side there were forces of Urlich II of Celje, and on the other was Stjepan Banic, of the former Kingdom of Croatia. In a struggle for succession of the Crown of St. Stephen, Banic was allied to Vladislaus III of Varna while Ulrich II supported Ladislaus the Posthumous’s eventual right to the throne. Czech mercenary Jan Vitovec commanded Ulrich II’s forces, which were ultimately victorious, taking Banic prisoner after the battle.
