Filmed and Edited by: Marek Bubenik

This Prague travel guide by drone 4K takes you to the city whose glory reach the stars and to the place where every step you make tells you a story of the past.

In this aerial video I would like to present you Prague the city where I was born and where I spend most of my life. Prague beauty is very hard to explain by words, everywhere you look there’s always something new to see, artists performing in the streets and an atmosphere that takes you away. Everything is so old and beautiful, it is a marvel of architecture and culture.

In video about Prague you can see:

  • The Charles Bridge It spans the Vltava river and is adorned with many statues of the saints, making its visit an unique experience
  • Prague Castle which has been a seat of power for kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman emperors, and presidents of Czechoslovakia. It is also the largest ancient castle in the world.
  • The Emmaus monastery as well as Charles bridge were founded by king Charles IV, This monastery is unique because it was the first place where ceremonies were not held in Latin but in a local language. It was allowed by pope in a condition that it will be the only monastery of this kind in the empire.
  • The Czech Prague National Theatre which is known as the alma mater of Czech opera, and as the national monument of Czech history and art. The National Theatre belongs to the most important Czech cultural institutions, with a rich artistic tradition, which helped to preserve and develop the most important features of the nation–the Czech language and a sense for a Czech musical and dramatic way of thinking.
  • The Castle Vyšehrad is fortified Castle with a lot of legends. Vyšehrad was also the place of the first settlement which later became Prague
  • Statue of Kafka – Rotating head by famous Czech artist David Černý. The 42 mobile tiers of eleven-metre-tall sculpture align to form the face of the famous Czech writer Franz Kafka.
  • The Old Town Square which features buildings belonging to various architectural styles, including the Gothic Church of Our Lady before Týn, which has been the main church of this part of the city since the 14th century. Its characteristic towers are 80 m high. The Baroque St. Nicholas Church is another church located in the square. Prague Orloj is a medieval astronomical clock mounted on the Old Town Hall. The clock was first installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest one still in operation. The tower of the Old Town Hall is open to the public and offers panoramic views of the Old Town. The square’s center is home to a statue of religious reformer Jan Hus, who was burned at the stake for his beliefs in Constance. This led to the Hussite Wars. The statue known as the Jan Hus Memorial was erected on 6 July 1915 to mark the 500th anniversary of his death.

New Travel Videos: “Palawan”, Philippines By Martien Janssen (2020)

Filmed and Edited by: Martien Janssen

Palawan, Philippines, one of word’s most beautiful islands seen from sky. This was the first trip with my drone, still trying to get the hang of it, but man what a fabulous place to fly! I traveled from the very north to the very south, this movie takes you along the trip.

Palawan Philippines Aerial Video January 2020 by  Martien Janssen.JPG

– Coron island is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever, hiding 7 lakes and surrounded by countless gorgeous lagoons. Seeing from the sky is just sick.
– El Nido must be one of the best places on the planet for boat tours and island hopping. So many great places to visit, such gorgeous scenery. Book your own tour to avoid the big crowds! Leave eary as well. If you can afford it of want to splash, there’s some crazy cool accommodation on the islands.
– Long Beach at San Vicente is the country’s longest beach at 14km. Soft white sand, no one on it, except a rediculous amount of sandflies that come alive at sunset.
– Port Barton is wonderful laid back little fishing town that’s great to escape the crowds and do some quiet island hopping tours.
– Honda Bay is famous for island hopping as well, but tourism and they way they handle tourism just seemed to ruin it all. Starfish island for example, has no more starfish.
– South Palawan is really off the beaten track, largely due to safety reasons. Still not sure if I’m brave or stupid, but I went anyway and absolutely loved staying at Bancalan island, which receives averagely 5 visitors a year. There were no facilities for tourists at all, so I ended up renting a room at a family’s house, who cooked for me and my buddy as well. We showered at the waterpump like the locals and slowly were able to make more contact with the shy locals. Spend a few days going out on fishing & island hopping trips, which was incredible and so opposite of El Nido, where there are so many boats, you can barely swim.
