“Very moving”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

The rooms are a tribute to those killed in this tragic piece of recent history and a reminder of those terrible events when parts of the beautiful city were destroyed and damaged beyond recognition and shows just how far the city has come in restoring itself to its former glory.

“Proud but sad”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

On these walls are the photos of the young men who lost their lives defending Dubrovnik in the most recent war. It gives one pause to see the photos and the names and read the history.

“A Very Moving Experience”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

This is not an ultra-modern or techie exhibition. Rather it's a simple one of photos and details of brave men....many very young who made the ultimate sacrifice for city and country. Consequently, it's a very moving experience and is richer for its simplicity.

“What a waste of young lives”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

The memorial room is in the stunning Sponza Palace in a side room. The Palace is composed of an internal atrium where art exhibitions and concerts are held.The memorial is sombre in that so many youngsters were killed. It is quite small but tastefully presented.I wonder if splitting Yugoslaia into fragments has left anybody better off as a lot of local people look back fondly to the times of union.

“Very touching”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

These are simply displayed, and it is rather stunning to see how many were very young men. We wandered in without really knowing what the display was. and are glad we did.
