We visited after visiting the museum on mount Srd and this tribute brought reality to the comprehensive explanations given there. This is a memorial and a full and detailed account of the Homeland War can be found elsewhere. A rightful tribute in the heart of the old town of Dubrovnik. Free of charge. Perhaps ignore those giving a 1/5 who... More

The exhibition was okay, very moving to think and see how young most of the defenders were. It's located in a beautiful building, worth going.

This room was the saddest portrayal of the recent 1990,s conflict in Dubrovnic, it showed pictures of all those who died defending and protecting the old monuments and buildings of Dubrovnic . Most of them really young men .. Quite a moving place . Especially as this conflict was in my lifetime

This is a very sad and moving place. I had no idea that the old town suffered so much in the recent war. To see the photos of all the young and not so young men killed and in this horrible conflict was very thought provoking.

Its a very small room with pictures of the fallen soldiers, especially emotive to see ones so young. I know that happens in war, but I was their age at the time of the war and it got me thinking how I would feel.

When in a city heavily influenced by recent history, one needs to get a fair outlook at what really happened, while portraits are quite moving, the account of historic fact is just flawed

Quite a small room with photographs of all those who died in the Homeland War defending their city, many of them very young. Would also advise visiting Homeland War museum at top of cable car.

The story and history behind the Dubrovnik Defenders is an unbelieveable, surreal story in the recent history of this amazing city! It is hard to believe that this amazing, beautiful city was at War only 22 years ago and that regular men and women rose to battle and defend their great city. What is even more amazing is how this... More
