See Dubrovnik
From The Eyes
Of A Local

Churches and monuments,
buildings and streets
do not make the city,
regardless of how
beautiful or unique they are.

Residents create the city.

The history of any city
is the history of people
who had lived there
over centuries.

Let me guide you through
the streets of Dubrovnik Old Town
and tell you the stories
of the former tenants
of my 500-year-old home.

Dubrovnik Tour Guide Vesna Barišić

Ask For Vesna – Walk With Vesna

I am born and raised in Dubrovnik, and I am still passionately in love with my birthplace. In its beauty, but even more in its rich history. All my attempts to live elsewhere failed. I always came back home, driven by longing, enchanted by this city.

My birthplace still has the soul of a medieval town, where you are never alone, in which you are never lonely. Everyone is your friend, all of them take care of you, and sometimes of your business and life, too. Full of good intentions, they participate uninvited in your life, despite the fact that their attention is the last thing you want. But that’s what friends are for, isn’t it?

I am still living in my centuries-old home and I dream about the people I’m going to meet and new friends I’m going to make. So, join me for a walk around my city. Let’s become friends!

Enchanting and family friendly! Vesna was the most amazing guide I’ve met. She’s so insightful about every corner in Dubrovnik, what is seen and what is unseen. Her witty sense of humour delights us as we appreciate more about life in medieval times, communist Yugoslavian years, homeland war, and the tourism boom era…”
