A walking tour where you'll find out about the turbulent 20th century in Dubrovnik. In 80 years, five different regimes controlled Dubrovnik, including the fascist Ustaša - Croatian movement and communist Yugoslavia under Tito. The communist regime fell apart during 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 in the very streets where it happened with the help of photographs. These were taken by brave people who risked and even lost their lives to raising awareness of the terror that shook Dubrovnik in the 1990s.
