  • This is a very small exhibition but still worth seeing. It is a relatively cheap exhibition that won't take too much of your time. There is also another section of the building you can see that would ...  more »
  • The first left room on the ground floor of the old city's Mint, is now dedicated to the memory of the victims of Ntoypmrobnik, in the period that the region greeted the pounding of artillery and the air force of the Federal Army Yugoslavia, (power that actually had their control Serbs, Montenegrins and volunteers from the East and West Herzegovina). There are photographs of the victims around the walls, tall up photos from the period of the siege, in depth left a tv that displays constantly a video lasting about 9 minutes with scenes from the war, and in the center of the room a glass showcase with tokens and some of the uniforms of the forces involved in the business.

Where to stay in Dubrovnik

One of Croatia's major tourist destinations, Dubrovnik remains one of the most expensive cities in the country, especially if you wish to stay in the old town at peak season. You can choose from upscale hotel rooms just east of the old town, but for budget-friendly beds you may have to go as far as the outskirts of town. Many locals rent small rooms in their private homes, so look for rental signs in windows or check with the city's tourist office.
