More about this tour

A walking tour where you will discover how was it to live in Zadar during the turbulent 20th century. World War I caused Italian occupation and years of fascist rule under Benito Mussolini. The city changed culturally, demographically and politically.

World War II was a disaster with 80% of Old Town destroyed by Allied bombing. Rebuilding Zadar was a difficult task under communist rule and Tito. The fall of communism through the Croatian Homeland War marked the end of totalitarian regimes and brought peace to both Croatia and Zadar.
