A stunning time-lapse video captures The Cathedral of St James in Šibenik in all its glory. The two-minute film comes from filmmakers Mario Romulic and Drazen Stojcic, whose project Timelapse Croatia shows beauty spots and tourist destinations across the country in dazzling, high-definition footage. 

Built between 1431 and 1535, the Dalmatian cathedral is a fascinating example of architectural style in Northern Italy, Tuscany and Dalmatia in the 15th - 16th centuries. It has an unusual structure built entirely from stone, and it boasts distinctive decorative features; the most striking is a frieze featuring 71 sculpted faces of men, women and children. As the video illustrates, the Unesco-listed building boasts a fusion of Gothic and Renaissance influences. 

Romulic and Stojcic's project has been extremely successful. The pair were behind the Hvar in the Storm video which accompanied Croatia's 2016 Eurovision Song Contest entry, Lighthouse. Before it was even aired on the international contest, it had gone viral, and it's now been viewed over three million times. The pair will continue to point their lenses at Croatia's best bits.
