In Napoleon’s Wake

Tour of the entire territory of the former Illyrian provinces in Croatia; professional lecture in Zadar with special emphasis on the cultural heritage left by the French rule in Dalmatia; savouring local delicacies.

Despite its short duration in these parts, the French rule during Napoleon’s conquests has introduced crucial changes to the form and direction of development of our country - from the construction of modern roads to the encouragement of education and establishment of schools in Croatian language. Numerous things still remind us of the ruler, who may have been short in stature but his appetites for conquest were indeed grand, and whose rule accounts for a number of important facets of our history. Come and see the beauty of the Illyrian provinces - as Napoleon called them - from the inlands of Croatia to the unique city of Dubrovnik whose centuries long independence was ended by Napoleon himself. Join us on this journey up and down the most important roads through what once were Illyria provinces and visit the venues of the crucial events. And while you are enjoying the local cuisine, and washing it down with fine wines, get the feel of what it is like to be a ruler - even just for the duration of lunch.
