Secrets of the Adriatic

Geheimnisvolle Adria

For a long time, the Adriatic Sea used to be Central Europe's only link to the orient. This small sea became a symbol of entry to the vast, exotic world, allowing the city of Venice to call itself «Queen of the Seven Seas». Cultural riches are embedded on the Adriatic's coast against an unparalleled natural backdrop. On the northern coasts of the Adriatic stretches one of Europe's largest wetlands, which is not only a paradise for migratory birds and waders, but also the northernmost colony of flamingoes. This film follows the trail of the highly endangered griffon vultures whose last colonies are to be found on just a few islands and some rocky cliffs of the Dalmatian coast. It reveals a range of animals that even the most tenacious of Adriatic holidaymakers rarely see, including sand vipers, mongooses and Greek tortoises in the olive groves.
