Incredible Croatia, May 2019

Have you ever heard about hot air balloon technology? Hot air balloon technology is the first successful technology that enabled humans to fly and it seems that first flight was performed in 1783, in Paris in a balloon created by the Montgolfier brothers.

Hot air balloons that can be propelled through the air rather than simply flying with the power of the wind are called thermal airships.
