When we went there was an exhbition of Syrian photos downstairs which were in part shocking but worth seeing. Upstairs you can see pictures of the Yugoslav wars of the 90s.

A simple yet moving reminder of what this historical city has suffered in such recent times. Almost at odds with the architecture but a reminder of the evil of war.

Powerful, no-holds-barred photography from daring photojournalists. The exhibits are a stark contrast from the liveliness of old town and give the viewer a sense of what transpired in Croatia only twenty years earlier and gives new respect for what the country has become. The exhibit is not appropriate for children (though many are sadly featured in the photos), but should... More

The two exhibitions are excellent reminders of the cost of war. If some of the world leaders took time to see some of these photos especially of the innocent children suffering, it may make them think twice before entering into conflict!

I enjoy history so packed the team off on a boat trip so I could visit in peace. Located up an alley of the main drag. Most of the photos are from the current disaster that is Syria. I can see why we rarely get to see these photos as I would think we would be running to our governments... More

The exhibition on Syria was informative, carefully-handled and very moving. Each photo has a caption in the booklet (which I think's important, especially when the photographer himself has a story to tell) and - albeit a little one-sided in terms of its political slant - gives a heartbreaking insight into the current situation. Some photos are quite graphic and disturbing,... More

Give visitors a good understanding of the conflict and politics of the region. While we were there there was a visiting exhibition of photographs from Syria. Heart-wrenching images of innocent victims and homes destroyed.

We walked round the gallery which was exhibiting Syria's War: a journal of pain. Photographs and text by Pulitzer prize -winner Narciso Contreras. So pleased that we went to view the exhibition, it was certainly very thought provoking and certainly very sad and sobering..

Learned a lot about the Yugoslav wars, as well as about the situation in Syria. Warning: some of the pictures are not for the faint of heart!
