Owner description: War Photo Limited is an exhibition centre of war and conflict photojournalism situated inside Dubrovnik's historic old city, spread over 2 floors the 350m2 (3800 sq ft) displays photographic exhibits by world renown photojournalists covering recent and ongoing regional and global conflicts. It is the intent of War Photo Limited to educate the public in the field of war photography, to expose the myth of war and the intoxication of war, to let people see war as it is, raw, venal, frightening, by focusing on how war inflicts injustices on innocents and combatants alike.

After walking around the old town and seeing all the ancient history and doing the touristy things, this is a powerful reminder of more recent history of this magnificent place and these wonderful people. The pictures of all the mostly young people who fought and perished is very emotional. The damage to the old town and the manner in which it has been rebuilt is a testament to the strength and pride of the residents. It is important to visit this museum to better appreciate what this city, region is all about. It is a very humbling place.

Until you visit here it is hard to appreciate what the Croation people in Dubrovnik went through. Devastation to so much of the city, loss of life and great hardship. Words can't express, puctures can only help imagine what it must have like. The bonus was it was open and free.

Be prepared to be moved and to be humbled when you see photo after photo of so many young men who died defending this city. I knew i couldn't leave Dubrovnik without paying my respects, so to speak and remembering what this city has gone through.

The entry to this arena is very beautiful and offers many photo opportunities but once you enter into the room of photos of lost lives during the war, it is overwhelming with faces and lost lives. My husband was able to review and read the details, and since I was already familiar with the historical content but then saw the faces of all the young lives lost, I just couldn't spend much time here. I am proud of the Croatia people for the strength, pride, and dedication is fighting for their country. This place should definitely be a quick stop for everyone come to Dubrovnik, if only to pay our respects!

What an amazing collection of photographs that document the real face of wars that have since been forgotten in the Western world. Incredibly informative and moving and I wish we had the equivalent in London. Definitely worth a visit, followed by a quiet moment afterwards to collect your thoughts and emotions before returning to the tourist laden streets.
