1. The ancient city of «Petra» is a place full of mysteries. Little is known about this symbol of Jordan and now the country's most visited tourist attraction. It was established possibly as early as 312 BC as the capital city of the Nabataeans. It's called «Petra» (meaning: stone) today, but the original name of the city is not known. The site remained unknown until 1812, when it was introduced to the Europeans by Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt.
    About the shooting:
    «Petra - In the City of Mysteries» is after «Amman - City in Motion» (vimeo.com/46847325) and «Wadi Rum - A Majestic Landscape» (vimeo.com/47899470) my third time lapse movies about different sites in Jordan shot and edited for the Jordan Tourism Boaord (visitjordan.com).
