Dubrovnik is a city with over 1000 years of history, but we’re not interested in the kinds of tales you can find in guide books. Haunted Dubrovnik is dedicated to collecting and sharing with you the dark, the mysterious, and the ghastly from Dubrovnik’s murky past.
Dubrovnik is extremely proud of its glorious history. Despite its small size and force of arms, the city’s aristocracy ruled wisely as an independent republic for four and a half centuries. At its peak, Dubrovnik rivaled Venice for commercial and political power on the Mediterranean. But as the city grew in might, it also developed a dark side. A side few know about. A side that we want to share with you through the art of storytelling.
I am indebted to the city’s distinguished authors and historians for gathering many of these stories and inspiring my own imagination. You can read some of them in the stories section.
Hi! My name is Marija Milovac. I'm the author and owner of Haunted Dubrovnik and a professional licensed tour guide of Dubrovnik-Neretva county for more than 8 years now.
I will be your guide for the tours that you might book here. I am very passionate about my work and my Haunted Dubrovnik stories and tours. I always dig through literature, articles and other sources to try to find more about mysterious and dark Dubrovnik to satisfy my appetite for stories that I present to you. The folklore narrations from Dubrovnik's area are also magical, inspiring and incredible, sometimes truly scary, so I also incorporate those stories in my tours.
I am also currently studying at the University of Dubrovnik, at the department of History of the Adriatic and the Mediterranean, so I am trying to merge factual dark history with the old beliefs and legends to create unique experiences for my guests. Therefore, I hope that I will be able to deliver these less narrated and sometimes forgotten stories with that same enthusiasm that I feel when I discover them and that you will be charmed by my magical hometown of Dubrovnik.
