City Tour Best of Dubrovnik

The tour starts in the morning while the crowds are sleeping so we can have the streets of the Old Town for ourselves. We will focus on the unique history of the Dubrovnik Republic, a city-republic that existed for centuries among much stronger neighbors like the Ottoman Empire and the Venice Republic.

Dubrovnik people were sailors and merchants, among the best in the Mediterranean. Also, they were diplomats and spies, gathering and trading information. They cherished liberty as their highest value and were willing to do whatever it takes to preserve their independence.

This tour will explain how they did it for so many years while guiding you through this remarkable town. Along the way, we will visit all the historical sights including the St. Blaise Church - the patron saint had a lot to do with boosting the morale in difficult times, the Sponza Palace - the center of trading and relationships with the Ottoman Empire, Stradun - the main street, named so mockingly by the Venetians, Rector's Palace - where politics of the Republic was created, Cathedral - where the gold is stored, the Orphanage - where the Republic secured that no child is left abandoned and many more hidden gems known only to locals.

Dubrovnik Republic's history is a story of intrigue, diplomacy, power, and resourcefulness. Let us be your guides through it.
