Croatia Željava Air Base

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
While most tourists who visit Croatia focus on beautiful towns and the seaside destination, the country also has some of the most unique places in the Balkans. One of them is the abandoned Željava Air Base.

It was once one of the largest underground air bases in Europe and the top secret place on the map of the former Yugoslavia. But was another victim of the cruel Yugoslav Wars in the 1990s when it was destroyed and eventually fell into disrepair.

Željava Air Base is such an excellent place to explore with unlimited photo opportunities.
On the outskirts of the air base, you can find an old Douglas C-47 B where it's possible to take a look inside the old plane.

Photography Tips

Bring a tripod for crisp shots since there's not too much light inside the plane.
