What to Expect

When looking at Dubrovnik one can only imagine peace and prosperity. However the history of the city has been much different, and darker.

The tour will briefly give historical context of the French siege and loss of the Ragusa Republics independence, then its incorporation into the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the bloodshed experienced in both world wars.
