Communist and World War II Tour

Communist and World War II Tour

star-5

Ever wondered what it was like to live under fascism? Or nazism? Or even communism? This tour answers those questions and many more. Zadar came under the rule of fascist Italy in the first part of the 20th century. As an important fascist and later nazi strategic point, Zadar was a target of a disastrous bombing campaign in the Second World War when 80% of the Old Town was destroyed. After the war, there was a new totalitarian rule - a communist one. A specific liberal style of communism brought both prosperity and misery to the people. Western products were copied or smuggled into the state, Western movies were filmed in Yugoslavia and Western culture influenced the younger generations. This tour includes more than 80 photos and pictures while discussing workers, workplaces, tourism, everyday life, products, music, movies, and much more with the goal of providing an in-depth perspective on how the life of ordinary people looked like in a communist state.

Rome vs. Venice - Zadar City Tour

Rome vs. Venice - Zadar City Tour

This 90-100 min Walking Tour introduces you to 2 big governments that determined the shape and appearance of Zadar today. Roman Empire and Venetian Republic. Their architecture, legacy and heritage outlived almost everything in this town. Roman heritage in Zadar will astonish you with its endurance and Venetian with firmness. We walk 90-100 min rain or shine no matter what. Dress accordingly, bring umbrella or a raincoat if needed. We don't enter any Museum or Church. But don’t think for a minute that we’ll skip other very important facts and living proofs of other Kingdoms, Unions, Monarchies and their governments. If we observe the city from the perspective of architecture, preserved monuments and the overall inherited image after the Romans, then, we must say that Venetian Republic isn’t far behind, at all. On the contrary, Venetian Republic is responsible for achieving the status of a city with UNESCO heritage from July 2017.
