This is free. Just walk in and view the pictures of the defenders of Dubrovnik. Part of the history of Dubrovnik and a really sad part.

The room captures the human toll of the relatively recent problems associated with the break up of Yugoslavia. It features a picture of each of the fallen and has a visual of some scenes from the conflict when the down was under attack.
