Kupari, bay of abandoned Hotels with epic sunset drone footage


Good morning, where are we?
-We are at the Adriatic coast in Croatia. We had a bad night, we have slept for only two hours. So we’re a bit tired. We are now driving for 5 hours and have 1 more to go. We’re heading to Kupari, there’s a bay with abandoned hotels, pretty cool We also have other locations on the list like navy ships, bunkers and hotels, so it’s going to be nice. The theme this time is a bit military, because they had fierce fightings in the beginning of the 90’s at that bay. There’s a lot of war damage, special to see.
-It looks like a tropical paradise, but it’s also an old warzone. The surroundings are also beautiful, we had some nice views.
-If it gets to hot we can take a swim. We are lying between the abandoned buildings. We’re not the only visitors today. It’s time to search a sleeping spot.
-In a hell hole. A lot of riffraff walking around here, i hope we don’t get disturbed. Nice spot. Clean, let’s do it. Have a few beers.
-And then we say goodnight. See you tomorrow, when we’re going to explore.
-Sunrise at 05:15, so it’s a short night. We had a bad nigth again.
-4 hours of sleep. Let’s check some hotels. This was for the military elite right?
-Yes Everything is gone, after the war they completely stripped it.
-Half the city is built from these hotels. There are only 2 windows left. Yeah.
-The last 2. In 25 years the hotels suffered from vandalism, theft Empty shells. It was really busy last night, loads of teenagers.
-They arrived after 12 AM. You can see the war damage here. Allright Eelco, the next hotel is straight I think there’s a swimming pool here. Which hotel is the biggest? I guess this one, it’s high. -Yes the biggest and most vandalized. It’s nice. They also paintball here, pretty cool place to do here.
-Yeah cool. And that’s the…
-Lobby 4 hotels in total.
this, this, this and that one. 3 hotels from the 60’s and one from 1910. Have you been there?
-No We are at a theater, well closed, let’s see if we can get inside. I think it’s closed.
-Next. Paradise in ruins here. Jesus, those bullet holes.
Must have been a large caliber. It’s funny that all the people are strolling around in the buildings. Everybody is curious. It IS interesting !
-Here’s also a nice part. Burned. Nice part. Exploring is not the only thing that happens here… It’s really early, but it’s getting crowded already. I think this is the hotel with the nicest overview on the bay.
_I think so too. Nice part, the breakfast room or a bar. It’s a miracle it didn’t burn down yet. Again everything broken… wow, the view is the best part of the explore. It was a nice and easy one. Even if you’re not a real urban explorer, you can just walk in everywhere. Nice atmosphere, and a beautiful beach ! So you can leave your partner behind when they don’t want to explore with you. It’s not about the details here, but the complete package, the overview. Exploring a bit on an holiday destination.
-Where are we heading, Montenegro? Yes man, i hope the navy ships are still there.
-2 hours more south. Allright, bye !

    Did not sleep in one of the hotels. Plenty of cheap places in the neighborhood. But not in Dubrovnik which is very nice but expensive to stay.

  3. Nothing beats watching a group of friends who loves to explore places where other explorers wouldn't dare to go! This is so amazing, I look forward to your videos everytime you upload 🙂 love from singapore!

  4. Vette videos! 1 vraagje, zijn er ook plannen voor 60fps video's? Dit zou namelijk prachtig zijn met jullie drone shots etc.!

  5. ik ben op vakantie in Kroatië en wil na het zien van dit filmpje ook graag ernaar toe kan ik gewoon kupari invullen op Google maps en kom ik dan op de goede plek of moet ik iets anders invullen?

  6. Paradise Decay !
    Despite the vandalism, these places are nice to discover.
    Thanks for the visits. Nice video, like always.

  7. You have some of the most interesting, unique, and visually stimulating exploration videos on the internet. Keep up your amazing work!

  8. Een hele gave video weer. Ik ben na de oorlog in de jaren 90 eens door kroatie gereden. Ik weet niet hoe het er nu voor staat, maar er stonden toen complete dorpen leeg.

  9. Toevallig heb ik deze week een luxe nudisten hotel gezien in kroatie dat verlaten is. Leuk om eens rond te lopen, de mensen liggen gewoon te genieten. Maar ook net als deze hotels vrij weinig van over.

  10. Wow wat een intressante plaats. Kun je mooi 5* rest van maken 😉 Mooi verslag ook. Wij dit jaar bij Tito's vila Izvor geweest bij Plitvice. Ook zo indrukwekkend.

  11. Hoe vinden jullie van die mooie verlaten plekken altijd ? Ik ga morgen naar Londen en wil graag mooie verlaten plekken bezoeken

  12. very amazing! i love the vids! could i please have the number of the end song? i luv it! keep doing the good work guys.

  13. Lets bring a little bit of a historic context so everyone understands. Warning for everyone, this post might be longer than usual!

    The small bay of Kupari, where, just after the First World War, was only an old brick factory, was seen by two Czech entrepreneurs Jaroslav Fencl and Jan Máša. They bought the land and ordered building plans at the famous Prague architect Jiří Stibral.

    In 1921, in the bay on the site of the brickwork, the Czechoslovak semi-natural sea baths were built by Grandhotel Kupari. The entire completion was completed in August 1923, when 166 rooms with 340 beds were available.

    The construction was carried out by the builder Alois Zima of Bubenec under the supervision of a building master sent from Prague. He hired Czech bricklayers, carpenters and varnichers and transported them from Bohemia. But they also used local people.
    The hotel was set up by a Czech and French restaurant, which was run by Mr. Kobylka and Bohuslav Hejda, who previously worked at the Paris Hotel in Prague. Both restaurants could serve all 340 guests at once.

    At that time, it was the most luxurious Grandhotel in Southern Dalmatia, which was to become the foundation of the future "Slavonic Riviera".
    The hotel had its own greenhouse where the ornamental flowers were grown as well as the vegetables for kitchen, inside the hotel was a garden and a palm-covered promenade. The amount of greenery gave a pleasant shade, on average there was a 2 ° C lower temperature than in the middle of Dubrovnik during the summer.

    Kupari also had a first-republican social party, such as Prime Minister Antonín Švehla, František Udržal (prime minister in 1929 – 32) or Prague Mayor Karel Bax. It was silver and the hotel even featured in the film First Law of Sin.

    Kupari once used to be the best Grandhotel in southern Dalmatia.
    For the neighboring bay, Jiří Stibral designed the entire spa town, but this building has never been implemented. After 1945, the Yugoslav army took over the baths and made it a rehab. There were other buildings, including a separate villa for Josip Broz Tito. In the end, nine other hotels were prepared for holidaymakers, and the total occupancy of the bay so climbed up to 4,500 guests.
    The end of everything happened with the advent of the Croatian War of Independence in 1991 and the hotel is still very poor condition today. Croatia, however, announced a plan for its reconstruction and revitalization two years ago.

  14. hey ! paar jaar geleden in Krk geweest en op een verlaten hotel terechtgekomen : Hotel Haludovo – Krk. Een kijkje waard als jullie volgende keer naar daar trekken!

  15. You guys skipped some old military bases, especially in Bosnia. U've got places with underground hangars and old Yugoslavian jets that were made by Yugoslavia.

  16. Truly amazing videos guys I’m totally subscribed and totally addicted thank you for sharing your brilliant times with us I a a disabled man who cannot get out much so thank you x best wishes and stay safe guys xxxx Jason the uk xx

  17. Now i can't stop to watching this channel right now, it's really amazing. All of you're really awesome. Btw where is Frederik, he's not show up on this episode ?

  18. Sad to see Kupari abandoned. I stayed at the Hotel Pelegrin in 1990 and thought it had been destroyed long ago. It was so clean with gardens and a great bar in the centre of it. Amazing to see the structure is still standing in 2018!

  19. I was there yesterday and went in exploring and took some photographs. I can say that you two are very stupid just wandering in not noticing what's above your heads. I would go back only with safety helmet as most parts have heavy objects that are falling down from ceilings. Its very sad to see it abandoned but i personally dont think it should be developed into another luxury resort. It should be left as a reminder of some great and some bad times.

  20. ahhh kupari beach and the hotels… when i was a little girl we used to travel there from austria… and now we are trying to go there every 2 years… so we were there this year and 2 years ago.. i love it there…quite a drive from austria but worth it!
