Croatia with UBC Professor Brigitte Le Normand

On this fascinating tour, you will have an opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful and storied parts of what used to be Yugoslavia. Because this region was a historical borderland, ruled by the Austro-Hungarian, Venetian, and Ottoman Empires and the autonomous city state of Ragusa (Dubrovnik), this is truly a meeting place of cultures, religions and languages.

The region’s delicious food ranges from refined pasta dishes and truffles in Istria, schnitzel and sausage and delicious cakes in Zagreb, and mouth-watering sea-food and juicy figs on the Adriatic coast, to delicious meat or cheese pies (burek) and grilled meats with pickled hot peppers in Bosnia and Serbia.

Everyone falls in love with the Adriatic coast, with its fragrant pine trees, rocky beaches and turquoise sea. Zagreb has a charming city centre featuring some wonderful secessionist architecture.

In Bosnia you will encounter the stark beauty of Mostar and its UNESCO protected bridge – destroyed in the recent war, and then rebuilt.

As a historian of Yugoslavia with a focus on urban and migration history, I can’t wait to share with you what I know about the turbulent and complex history of the region – particularly the 20th century history which witnessed the rise and fall of the two Yugoslavias. I hope you will join us!
