Great Historical Background

Ivo provided a robust, hour long recap of the historical shifts that impacted Dubrovnik and made it what it is today. This context was very useful for this destination.

Interesting and thorough overview

Ivo did an excellent job presenting an overview of Dubrovnik. He explained just enough history to understand the development of Dubrovnik over time, never dwelling too long on a topic. I especially enjoyed his presentation about the specialization in certain areas (oysters, wine, national park). His overview was interesting for the duration of the session. My family and I are visiting the area in June. We cannot wait!
