Dubrovnik, the war story

Written By Vesna Lukic

1991 was the worst year in history for the city of Dubrovnik. That was the first time ever the city was attacked and although it was severely damaged it’s beauty never left it. One of the most important dates of 1991 was St Nicola’s day, December 6th, when the city was bombed for more than 10 hours continously. That was also the day when Croatian army stopped the enemy army on their way to conquer the Mediterranean jewel. The symbol of the war and the defense stands still on top of the hill Srdj, fort Imperial. This tour we will start with cable car ride to the top of the hill where we will visit the War Museum. Don’t forget the handkerchiefs because what you will see up there is emotional, but what brings the tears even better is the moment you leave the museum and the tour takes you to the panoramic lookout above the town and you realize the city was brought up from the ashes just like a Phoenix would do.

Tour will take us back to the city center where we will take a stroll down the narrow streets of Dubrovnik and I will tell you the story on how the life was under the siege.

Vesna Lukic

I have spent over 15 years working with leading travel agencies and tour companies in Croatia where I was in charge of all services related to cruise companies. Major accounts I dealt with were companies handling high class customers such as Compagnie du Ponant, Star Clippers, Happag Lloyd, Crystal cruises; for which we needed to facilitate both standard offer of shore excursions, as well as various private tours and inquiries for more complex services and special events (cocktails, dinners, fireworks, concerts…). After this part of my career I felt it was time to start my own business with more of personal touch, dedicated to private tours not only in Dubrovnik but in whole of Croatia and other former Yugoslav republics (Montenegro, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Macedonia). Our services are not related only to shore excursions but we also provide accommodation (hotels, villas, private accommodation), private tours, overland tours, city breaks, and incentives. Unique Collection Ltd is family owned DMC based in Dubrovnik, we use our own assets (vehicles and guides) and thus are able to have complete control over quality management ensuring high standards of service.
