The laws on flying a drone in Croatia are relatively strict, however not everyone abides by the rules. This tourist was filmed yesterday flying his drone in the centre of the ancient Old City of Dubrovnik.
With thousands of tourists sightseeing in the city and a group gathered around him to watch take-off he flew his drone along the main street, Stradun, and then landed back by the Orlando Statue in possibly one of the busiest parts of the city.
Flying over the Old City is strictly forbidden due to the possible dangers to the large number of people in the streets, and near the airport is also prohibited. But this tourist seemed oblivious to the risks and happily flew the drone around over the heads of hundreds of tourists.
As a local drone owner explained to The Dubrovnik Times, “Clearly the rules for locals and tourists aren’t the same, whilst we are forced to follow extremely tough rules tourists are able to flout these without any punishment.”
