Did you know that people perceived the Balkan Peninsula as ‘the gunpowder-barrel of Europe’?
In the 20th century, several wars burst in this region. Result of that is more military and civilian deaths than in any other period in history. Faced with a complex history and popular misconceptions observers often find it difficult to explain what was going on. This tour will present you with the historical background of conflicts that took part between the republics of former Yugoslavia, emphasizing Croatian homeland war and the siege of Dubrovnik.
Through this walk, you’ll be able to find out how citizens of Dubrovnik managed to cope with sudden and brutal strike on their city (UNESCO World Heritage Site, not to be forgotten). This attack and 8-month long siege that followed terrified the local population and shocked the international community.
Learn about fantastic recovery after the war was finally over, the revival of tourism and unbreakable Croatian spirit. Our guide will present all of this with the first-person experience as you walk along the streets of the magical Old City of Dubrovnik.
