Overview
Highlights
    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.

    Milka delivered an insightful and knowledgeable tour of key areas of Dubrovnik which were impacted by the 1991 attacks. Her knowledge and easy, relaxed delivery illuminated what could have been a difficult subject matter. I would highly recommend this tour.
