Overview
Learn of the struggles faced by Croatians during times of war on this 1-hour Dubrovnik walking tour. Explore Dubrovnik’s historic Old Town and listen as your guide sheds light on the Balkan Peninsula’s troubled past. Gain insight into the roots of Croatia’s 20th-century wartime history and learn how the struggles are perceived by Dubrovnik’s locals today. With personal accounts from your guide, hear stories from Dubrovnik’s ancient and modern history, and piece them together to gain understanding of the state of the nation and its people in the modern era.
What to Expect
At the very start of the 20th century the Balkan Peninsula was perceived as 'the restless corner of Europe'. Many who endeavor to explain what was actually going on feel that the deep, underlying reasons were not easy to understand.
The historical background will help you to see how recent conflicts have laid their roots in the past. Find out some of the misconceptions people had about the recent war, what it was like to live in a besieged town, and how everything returned back to normal. First-person accounts by your guide, stories from the ancient and modern history of the region, all in the spectacular setting of the Old Town, will give you a deeper insight into the true nature of Dubrovnik and its people.
