Interesting small exhibition on those that gave their lives in the 1990s conflict around Dubrovnik. Very personal, and makes us remember the futility of war at any time, in any place.

The Memorial Room deserves a bit of your time. It is at the end of the main street in the old town in Brsaije Street. It is only a small room but it contains the photographs of those who fought and died protecting the city.

TV screen shows fascinating old pictures showing the destruction that occurred during the war years. Photos of those who died are posted on the walls, soulful eyes of handsome young men who gave their lives. Very moving.
