Overview
Take a 2-hour tour through the problematic 20th century of Zadar while learning off fascism, Nazism, communism and the terrible Croatian Homeland War. World War I caused Italian occupation and years of fascist rule under Benito Mussolini. The city changed culturally, demographically and politically. World War II was a disaster with 80% of Old Town destroyed by Allied bombing. Rebuilding Zadar was a difficult task under communist rule and Tito. The fall of communism through the Croatian Homeland War marked the end of totalitarian regimes and brought peace to both Croatia and Zadar. Join us for the tour and find more about the turbulent history of this city...
