There was lots to see in the Palace, furnished rooms, collections of artefacts, a sobering photographic exhibition of life during and after the war of 1991-2 and a fascinating temporary exhibition of maps and charts. The building itself is beautiful with crisply carved limestone pillars...More

Didn't see too much of this and not sure if you can enter or not. Our guide just made a few comments about the archways and how they had survived the war. The area is extremely busy.

A bit pricy to get in - 60 Kuna. Full of old furniture and weapons. A visit to the cells was of interest, especially the one that had a dragon scratched into it at the entrance from some poor previous occupant

We haven’t been inside as my toddler wouldn’t have the patience to look around. That said the building from the outside is nice to look at and doubles up as a useful seating area which many tourists make use of during the day. It’s under...More

Inside the Rectors Palace was a photographic exhibition of the Homeland War. The photographs were very sobering and emotive, especially when one has walked around the streets and walls and visited some of their beautiful Churches. All War is horrible, but we remembered when this...More
