When Google Earth first unveiled Croatia’s distinctive heart-shaped Galenjak island, it captured the hearts of romantics all over the globe, bringing it to the world’s notice over a decade ago.
The tiny island, dubbed Lover’s Island, is situated in the Paman strait between the Paman Islands and the mainland town of Turanj.
But did you know that the island isn’t the only one in Croatia with a heart shape? There are more, all of which are curiously situated near Zadar on the Dalmatian coast.
Boris Kaan, a well-known Croatian photographer, flew into the sky in an aircraft to capture these breathtaking scenes of nature and show off more of Croatia’s distinct beauty. We take a look back at them in honor of Valentine’s Day.
