This place is worth seeing, it is earily historic, paying homage to the people who chose to defend their historic town during the breakup of the former Yugoslavia.

We wandered in here one evening after supper and so glad we did. It's a very simple but highly effective exhibition. My husband and I were transfixed by the images of these (mostly) very young men who defended their City. It was captivating and maybe...More

Man can be so cruel to man. While Croatia is not faultless in the wars following collapse of Yugoslavia, the Siege of Dubrovnik was cruel. Just think, every local adult you meet lived through this siege. The TV photos are devastating, the portraits of those...More
