“The Defenders of Dubrovnik Memorial Room”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

A facinating place that really brought home the suffering of the people of Dubrovnik during the Bosnian conflict. Very moving and a suitable and fitting memorial.

“sad and somber”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

the memorial to the fallen defernders of the city from 1991, and the pictures of the destruction, are haunting..A horrid reminder of men's folly.

These memorials make the horror of the war seem very real and underline the peace and restoration of today

“Moving”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

we stopped in to the memorial just before it closed lured in to the sponza palace by a display of local art. The simple room with pictures of the defenders was a moving tribute

“Small and sobering”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

There isn't much to this memorial; it's just a room next to the clock tower on the Stradun. But there's plenty here to hammer home the toll that war took on Dubrovnik, including video of the destruction that war wrought and individual photos of the many faces of the often young inhabitants who lost their lives in the fighting.

A visit won't take much of your time, but it's surely worth a stop.
