About Me

I am a tour guide and freelancer with a major in history from Zadar, Croatia. I am born in Zadar but moved to Korčula and stayed there from age 3-14. Then I moved to Split during high school. By the end of High school, I started learning Web Design in HTML. CSS and Java Script and made my first web page I returned to Zadar when I enrolled at University. I have a major in history. During study, I worked various jobs and learn graphic design which I did as a freelancer and also started learning 3d modeling. My thesis was Migration from Dalmatia in 1860. until 1918. I am interested mostly in social history, modern history, and migrations. I am learning Spanish and German in my free time because interest in exploring Latin America and Croatian communities in that area which was part of the research in my thesis. I worked in high school as a history teacher. I have some experience of working with people from many countries as I am renting rooms as a part of my house. I am also hosting people with Couchsurfing and Warmshowers. Currently, I am the most popular host on both platforms in Zadar. I have a certificate to work as a tour guide in Zadar county and a tour operator in the whole of Croatia from 2020. As a freelancer, I mostly worked with web and graphic design and recently 3d modeling. From September 2021 I have a certificate as Unity Programmer and Level Designer in Game and App Development. Currently, I have two games published on Android and two on PC. Also, I am traveling outside Croatia almost every year since I was 19 mostly by attending music festivals. I really like music so we can talk about that as well. Currently, I am developing one educational board game for Android. My walking tour is mostly history and art history oriented but I intend to adjust my walking tour depending on the people who booked it so I don't always go the same route. I am trying to make it a very complete experience in my beloved city. Feel free to ask me anything regarding my stay in Croatia as well. You have my contact.

My adress is Ulica obitelji Battara 24. It is 50 min from the city center
My phone number is +38591 941 1145. You can find me on Facebook and WhatsApp as well. I recently made a page on Artstation and on some similar portfolio pages where my works can be seen
From April I got skipper license (Boat Commander C category) so I am planning to work more in charter on sailboat. Also from 2024 I will live outside of Croatia outside of season so I cannot host as much as before.

2023 Update
I moved to Berlin and I won't host until I stabilaze finacially because I moved to study again and work so I have to focus more on studies and work for now. Don't ask about hosting until I put that I am accepting or maybe accepting hosts. I am open for meeting up and sharing interests. Also when I am back in Zadar than I can host. Photos are from my residence in Zadar. In Berlin I am in apartment with one room and 44 square meters.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I decided to make account on Couchsurfing because I have free room in my house where I already hosted people mostly who studied in Zadar and needed to go to exams. One my friend told me about this page so I made account. I have plans to travel all around the globe so Couchsurfing is great thing because I can host people and later when I visit their country they can host me.

I can teach you playing guitar. I can tech you Croatian history, customs some interesting things about Zadar, its monuments. I have been going on concerts and music festivals for more than 10 years so I have plenty of story to share with guests if they are interested. If guests play some instrument we can play together in my garage. I play mostly guitar but have drums and bass guitar as well but recently I don't play those so much.
