  • Such a waste of so many young lives is a sad reminder of the consequences of war but a tribute to the patriotism of those same men. 
  • It is housed in SRD mountain ropeway station. This building known as the bastion of the empire built by Napoleon I, is building. In Croatia independence war started in 1991, became a symbol of the defense. Testifying the revolutionary war-era of fierce gun battle in the exterior wall of a building or the like, has left some traces of shells and gunfire. Interior of Croatia independence war was introduced in the photo or the video. Inside the exhibition begins with sudden bombardment of the Yugoslav Federal Army (Serbia's flagship) chronologically, last but not least was leading up to the victory were exhibited. I understand that during this period many major buildings in Dubrovnik were damaged. This is the station destroyed a particularly memorable SRD mountain. Had posted photos of the ropeway when visited by 2015, on the second floor of the SRD mountain ropeway station destroyed, but was removed in 6/2016. Avoid touching the eyes of tourists or is lovely in this exhibition may have. Excellent views of Dubrovnik, the view from the roof of the building.
