Not so long ago Croatia was a part of Yugoslavia, a federation of states formed on a one-party system in which parliamentary democracy was a forbidden term. Yugoslavia was led by Tito, its president for life, and whose idea of communism was more progressive than in Stalin Russia. Thus, "Titoism" was a synonym for "betrayal of communism" in Soviet Union. Tito, therefore, has remained for the immense number of people one of the greatest statesmen of the Balkan countries. What was it like to live in time of Tito's Yugoslavia will be revealed to you while walking the part of the city where in time of socialism heavy industry was flourishing. We will be able to see some of the most important examples of architecture of that time in Dubrovnik. We will talk about the dark side of ex Yugoslavia - its intelligence agencies and punishing of the political opponents, as well as the bright sides of that time - a strong welfare state that provided free education and health care, social support to citizens in need and specific housing policies that secured the working population a place to live. Tour ends in Red History Museum in Dubrovnik.
