Winnetou Trilogy

Winnetou and Old Shatterhand / Treasure of the Silver Lake / Death of Winnetou

A new trilogy of Western movies based on the Winnetou novels by bestselling 19th century German author Karl May is to film in Croatia. May’s stories of fictional Native American character Winnetou were first adapted for the screen in the 60s and were also shot in Croatia.

Location filming will re-visit many of the spots used by the productions in the 60s along Croatia's coast such as: National Park Paklenica, Plitvice Lakes, National Park Krka, Mt. Velebit and Zrmanja Canyon, doubling for the American Wild West.
