Stumbled upon this by accident, but fascinating and equally horrifying reading. You tend to forget how recently all the fighting in this area took place. The narratives and the photos bring it home.

Everytime I go to Dubrovnik I am compelled to go to this place. It is very thought provoking. You can see what the town went through in the recent troubles. I recommend you to go even if it is just to show how well the town has come back from such devastation.

I knew very little about the attacks Dubrovnik experienced. This gives a very persona view with photos of so many who lost their lives.

This is a quiet understated memorial room to the heroes of Dubrovnik who lost their lives defending their city against the Serb war criminals who besieged them.There is not a lot to see but it is worth a visit simply for the experience. And it is free.

We stumbled across the memorial room quite by chance. The room is full of photo's of all the brave young men who lost their lives defending Debrovnik. It was very moving

You only need a short while here as its only 1 room. Its very atmospheric and helps you to understand what happened during the revent war.

A moving reminder of the fact that this beautiful and peaceful city has seen more than it's share of destruction and warfare in recent years. Was particularly moved to see the photographs of many of the young men who gave their lives in the defence of Dubrovnik.
