Overview
A walking tour where you will learn about the turbulent 20th century in Dubrovnik. In 80 years five different regimes controlled Dubrovnik including the rule of Ustase fascist movement and communist Yugoslavia under Tito. Communism collapsed through the brutal Croatian Homeland War and Dubrovnik wasn't spared.

On the contrary, the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was bombed and sieged for the first time in its centuries-long history. Relive those difficult times on the streets where it happened with the help of photos taken by people who risked or even lost their lives to raising awareness of the terror that was happening in Dubrovnik in the 1990s.

I went to the 6pm tour hosted by Marin and had a fantastic time. The tour is very informative about the history and architecture of Dubrovnik, but very light-spirited and fun. Marin was an excellent guide, and strikes the perfect balance between giving information without...More

I did the free walking tour with Marin and it was excellent. He was entertaining and really knew his stuff. I didn’t know much about Dubrovnik before, and it was really interesting to learn about the history of Dubrovnik before Game of Thrones came about.

I did this tour with Marin and it was excellent. He was practically a private guide, answered all my questions and showed me pictures and videos of what he was talking about on on-site. The tour isn't just about the war, it tells the recent...More
