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.

This is a fantastic tour!!! We have done many other tours (35+) in the last year and this one is definitely in the top 5 of our favourite tours. Marija was engaged, thoughtful, super presenter and has a deep knowledge of the topic and made this special. This is a must see!!!

Highly recommended! This tour met my expectations and then some. Marija was a wonderful host and tour guide. She's created a terrific ambience for the tour and the stories she tells as we toured the old city were very interesting. I learned a lot about Dubrovnik - Marija is very knowledgeable about the city's history. Marija cheerfully answered all of my questions. I would happily take another tour with Marija - hopefully in person next time. Thanks Marija!

I was following Marija ever since she started her Haunted Dubrovnik and other mysterious tours of Dubrovnik a few years ago and was planning to join one of her live tours but I just haven't had the chance to travel to Dubrovnik since. I was so excited when I heard about her online experience. She showed us the pre-recorded video, which I think was really smart because it secures the quality (it's a night setting), and shared the tales herself as we were watching. The video was composed in a really nice way, with a dark lady showing us the way and some pretty cool details, like the cats being the only creatures on the streets of Dubrovnik at night. All of this helped us believe in the mysterious side of the city. I also liked the way how Marija composed the stories - from a general overview to a very specific and relatable tale. She encouraged us to engage and helped us understand the area we covered. I am from Croatia and I participated together with my 14-year-old-daughter. She was still talking about it the next day, and she can be rather critical. We really felt like we were doing something out of ordinary and that we got to know Dubrovnik. The only downside is, this tour doesn't leave you with a feeling of checking that box on your to-do-list. Instead, we want to visit Dubrovnik and Marija's live tours even more:)

Marija was an amazing host. She showed us the high-quality movie she made as well as told the stories and history of Dubrovnik. I really enjoyed seeing the town in the night time and listening to the interesting tales. Great experience!
