  • We entered without knowing that there was this museum and the truth that I have a great deal in seeing how the Croatians suffered the war, the number of images of people who died defending the city in the last war. The truth is very moving and we do not see the dimension of war because we live in generations of peace but they were marked by the recentity of it, and the willpower that rebuilt the city. The museum is at the end of Stradun Street, it is free and close to those who will leave through the Ploce gate.

  • It's a bit of an effect to see images of what happened in this city less than 30 years ago. Too bad there's little care in the set-up.

  • My daughter was ordained in the atrium of the Sponza Palace in early June. A great place for a wedding < 3
