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 enjoyable experience that brightened up our lockdown. Marija is a great storyteller and was a pleasure to spend an evening with. Can't wait to take a tour with her in person once we are allowed to travel again!

Marija was super helpful in the lead up to the tour and responsive with questions beforehand as well. We had a great time learning some personalised stories and seeing beautiful Dubrovnik, Marija was super friendly and knowledgeable.

We’ve been to Dubrovnik a few times and gone on tours but this was, by far, the most informative. Some tours are all about the scenery but this tour gives a great insight into life in medieval Dubrovnik. Marija was a great host and happy to answer questions. Her knowledge of historical Dubrovnik is amazing. It helped that we were familiar with Dubrovnik but it certainly is a worthwhile virtual tour.

Marija's tour of some of the medieval parts of Dubrovnik was fun. She has good, interesting stories and some nice footage of the places in question. I definitely enjoyed it. Plus it was good value!

Marija is a wonderful guide who transports her guests to Dubrovnik old sites, interwoven with dark tales. It's a beautiful mix of visuals and trivia and keeps you entertained throughout the session. Marija is happy to answer questions related to Dubrovnik and Croatia in general too. Recommended if you're a lover of history and even more so, if you like all things dark & macabre.

Such a great online tour! Marija really transports you into old Dubrovnik with her accurate historical storytelling accompanied by her video tour of historical sites. She really grasped our attention and kept us engaged with fun trivia questions and facts about Dubrovnik. She is a wonderful tour guide with an upbeat and exciting personality. We cannot wait to visit Croatia and take a tour with her in person and really see Dubrovnik from a locals perspective. I highly recommend this tour!
