    So for all the people who ride the cable car up the Hill Srđ - must, should the Museum viewed - occurs is 30 per person but for all the Geschichtsinteressiert should be the kn - not an obstacle! In this Museum, it comes to the recent history of Croatia - the civil war of the 90s and the liberation struggle. Well prepared and also for all to understand that had still no points of contact with the topic! -Illustrated pictures and plans - explanations in Croatian and English. Video - watch TV prepares documents - interviews! Part with weapons from that time... Conclusion: very interesting! -better only the premises would be better prepared - as well as the terrace against rushed down protected......

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.
