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.

If you could enjoy dark stories complete with spooky video revolving around the fascinating city of Dubrovnik, book Marija's Dark Tales of Medieval Dubrovnik. She brings a Gothic style and charming voice to a live Zoom meeting. You won't find these stories in any guide book! And she is so attentive to her guests weaving a warm, intimate personalized experience. You will be so enchanted!

Marija's tour is a wonderful experience for history buffs or those who are aching for a vacation. Marija is an experienced guide, a student of history and Dubrovnik is her home town. The video you will view as she recounts historical tales of intrigue is creative and well done. You will enjoy a beautiful tour of the old walled city of Dubrovnik, possibly one of the most picturesque locations on the planet. We were lucky to have had the opportunity to visit Dubrovnik in person in 2019. I gave this experience as a birthday present to my partner, thinking we would have seen most of what was presented and it would be a nice refresher. As it turned out, though there were a lot of familiar places, we saw so many things that we had missed on our trip. Dubrovnik is steeped in a rich history and Marija brings it to life with her stories. I am an Airbnb tour guide, myself, and highly recommend giving this tour a try, especially with a friend.

We booked this experience on Oct 31 for some virtual Halloween fun. The tour was very interesting and engaging. Marija has many many spooky historic tales. The background music and video helped create the setting. I definitely recommend this experience. It's quite unusual - not something you would find on a regular city -tour. Thank you Marija for a superbe experience :)

This was a wonderful experience! There were two great things here: 1) Marija was a fantastic host. She knew her information, has some very interesting stories, and gave us a great tour. 2) The video of Dubrovnik. The video that she walks through is amazing. It's very professional, high quality, and was a great way to walk us through a tour. I felt like this was having a personal tour guide through a professional documentary. The visuals of Dubrovnik and reenactments as Marija is telling stories is fantastic. Without doubt, I would recommend this experience. Dubrovnik looked amazing, and we plan to add it to a future vacation. When we're there, we will absolutely look up Marija. Thank you!

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!
