Soon, there will be an ethic settlement built in the Winnetou theme, and it will be located on the territory of Obrovec. But it will not be an ethnic settlement in the full meaning of the word, this territory will be used to make amateur films. Winnetou tourism is mainly of interest to people of affluence as making a private film based on Winnetou is a rather expensive luxury.

Those who decide to do it can hire stuntmen, who will act in the film instead of famous actors. So, if you wish, you can have a hand at playing the cowboy or the Indian.
