Full description
Your tour starts at the Greeting to the Sun solar panel monument. From there you continue to the Sea Organ by strolling along the waterfront promenade. Following that, continue to the old Town to explore the vestige of the Roman Forum as you enjoy an odd combination of communist architecture in the medieval episcopal center. Tito and Yugoslavia will be discussed in a series of short stories woven into the tour at intervals, all as you discuss the highlights of the tour. You'll then continue towards the last monument to communism, where you will hear a bit about modern controversy regarding this topic. Afterwards, join your guide to the People's square before finishing the tour in a lovely garden overlooking the five wells and the Land Gate.

    Our guide was really nice. My mother has a lot of knowledge about Croatian history, which I haven't. She does not speak English and I do not speak croatian. So he adjusted to his audience in the kindest way. He spoke German with us , which we both can speak. He went into deep conversations about certain topics and answered all our questions. His German is really good,which he denies. The tour was not cheap, but he we were never in a hurry, eventhough we were late at the beginning. We were really happy how everything went. We can totally recommend this tour!
