Full description

In October 1991, Robert was a 19-year-old front-line soldier when the city was attacked by the Yugoslav People's Army, along with Serbian and Montenegrin paramilitaries who turned the region into a war zone for the next 9 month. Without any own army units on site, the people of Dubrovnik had to defend their city themselves against an overpowering aggressor. Back then, nineteen-year-old Robert experienced the attack as a front-line soldier. Today, three decades later, he takes you on an experience to tell you about the war from the perspective of an eyewitness. The tour includes a visit to Mount Srd which marked the last line of defence in 1992 but today it's Dubrovnik's most popular and scenic panorama spot offering impressive views. You'll also visit the Homeland War Museum, where you'll the see your tour guide on various pictures from that time. Even if this war happened more than 30 years ago, with what is currently happening in Europe and other parts of the world, this tour is more relevant today than ever.
