Dubrovnik offers many activities, but I am the first person who decided to offer a view of the city from a different perspective: exploring the dark side of it! This tour takes you into the lesser known suburb of the Old City (for the tour inside the old city check out my Dark tales of the Old Town tour). We will first meet at Boninovo, a part of Dubrovnik that was always veiled in mystery. There, you will hear about the turbulent history of the city's main cemetery and nearby old palaces. Following, we will explore the enchanting and evergreen Gradac park which, in the distant past, was one of the most notorious places in the city. Then we will continue through a labyrinth of old streets in Pile area and then we will end in front of the Pile gate. All along the way, we are going to see different historical sites, some of them reputed to be haunted, some of them known for other dark tales or legends. This is a fully-narrated walk, so expect to hear many stories, followed by the atmospheric surrounding of the evening walk through some lesser known parts of Dubrovnik.
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" because I wanted to share many dark histories and legends of my home city. Now I realize that I did the right thing! I am very lucky that I get to delve into the mystique and dark history of Dubrovnik through a ghost tour with people from all over the world.
We will explore the western approach to the Old City, we will go through the area that is less frequented by tourists, but also embellished with historical gems.
