You will first travel back in time to find about the turbulent history of the main Dubrovnik graveyard and the nearby renaissance palaces, some of them long forgotten, some of them still haunted by their former residents and mysterious events from their shady past. Then you will pass by the old hospital where tuberculosis patients awaited their final hour. You will also see the poetic and evergreen Gradac park which was once a place of gruesome death and public executions and where your storyteller will talk about some of the most famous legends of Dubrovnik. Then you will head towards the Old city and end your walk near the Pile gate, one of the main entrances of the medieval city.
