What you'll do

Welcome to Dark tales of medieval Dubrovnik tour! I would like to take you on a virtual evening walk through my home town.

If you join me, we will travel together back in time when Dubrovnik existed as the Republic of Ragusa that attained the golden age in the 15th and the 16th centuries. Despite Dubrovnik's political and economic success in the past, the city still hides the shadows lurking in the dark alleys and corners. Together with the stories and tales, I will share an atmospheric video with you that will take us on an exploration of the old town in the nighttime.

I will unveil many dark stories and secrets while exploring the empty streets of the Old Town. Starting at the main entrance of the Pile gate, we will learn the hidden tales of monasteries and their spectres. Soon after, we'll escape the main street and skip into some less frequented back alleys. There are many dark legends and tales of woe that I prepared for you and some of them the visitors never hear. We will pass by certain noble houses and end our virtual walk by the Rector's palace where the prisons used to be.

Along the way, you will hear the tales of political intrigues, secret executions, tortures and prisons, forbidden love affairs, the earthquake and the infamous plague, medieval nightlife and harlots of the city, tragic fates, ghostly phantoms and many more.

Hi! I am a professional licenced tour guide for Dubrovnik-Neretva country, but after years of working for different companies, I felt that my ideas and my creativity couldn't be fully expressed there.
So, I opened a little business and started doing something different. My experience is called "Haunted Dubrovnik" and is 4 years old project. I wanted to share many dark histories and legends of my home city. I am very passionate about my work which was covered several times in local media. I am very happy that I get to delve into the mystique and dark history of Dubrovnik through my tours with people from all over the world.

A really wonderful experience with a knowledgeable host. It felt like an adventure. It was a fun activity to do with friends and, while not designed for children, it wasn't too uncomfortable when my eight-year-old hung over my shoulder for most of it. Particularly fun at Halloween

As my first virtual Airbnb experience, this definitely sets the standards high. Marija’s story telling was captivating! You really get pulled into the stories and easily forget that you aren’t on your couch at home, instead you feel like your meandering through the medieval streets of Dubrovnik. The videography was very well done and helped paint a realistic picture of the stories told. I visited Dubrovnik years ago and and am looking forward to going back for one of Marija’s tours! I learned so much from this historically spooky tour and highly recommend for all to enjoy!

Great virtual tour!!! It was a fun and educational "mini trip" to tide us over until we can travel again. The story telling was charming and engaging!

This was a last minute sign up for me as i was intrigued by the description of this experience. Since I've never been to europe and am a huge history buff, i figured this would be something different to check out. I must say that i wasn't disappointed. Marija's storytelling along with the backdrop music and video as we went along the experience was very surreal. I never expected that medieval dubrovnik had so much scandal and hauntedness associated with it. I definitely hope to visit dubrovnik someday in person and will definitely link up with Marija for her in person tours.

The video does not contain much inside footage of the historic monuments. However, Marija makes the storytelling enjoyable to listen to, to which the dense historical content can be a bit difficult to retain.
