Hard to think that little more than 20 years ago Dubrovnik was under seige from its close neighbours and previous allies. A poignant display of the photos of some of the brave people who died in its defense.

Very sad looking at all the photographs of those local men who lost their lives bravely defending their lovely city.

We happened upon an open door one evening in the old town and just found this Memorial Room. (It's close to the Bell Tower.) What a fitting tribute to those who were so committed to defending Dubrovnik and how upsetting to remember how young a lot of the lives lost were. We had already visited other "attractions" so that we were aware of the break up of Yugoslavia and the resulting atrocities. So glad that we found this Memorial.

Do a little bit if research to learn about the war before visiting to get the full impact. Very moving and tasteful exhibit.

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 clearly don't quite get it!!
