War Photo Limited, Dubrovnik

War Photo Limited, Dubrovnik (must see)

A relatively new addition to the cultural landscape of Dubrovnik, this photo center was opened in 1990 by the famed New Zealand photographer, Wade Goddard, who specializes in photos from the war zones and areas of conflict around the world. When Goddard came to this region, he decided to make it his home. As one might expect, he extensively documented the Croatian-Serbian War of 1991 from Yugoslavia.

If you are going to visit this place, be prepared for some graphic nature of the content. Needless to say that it is not the best venue for children. Those who are willing to visit, however, will see some very moving, graphic, and eye-opening images shot during wartime. Sometimes shocking and always interesting, the presented images are very much worth the while of those wishing to learn about the tragic moments in the modern history of Croatia and the neighboring states.

Why You Should Visit:
Well-documented photo history that tries to provide an objective view of events and the harsh realities of living in a war zone.

The gallery has excellent air conditioning, so if you are overheating in the summer sunshine, use it as a cooling off stop.
Make sure to pick up a free guidebook at the ticket desk, as it provides brief description for each photo displayed.

Opening Hours:
Daily: 10am-10pm (May-Sep); Wed-Mon: 10am-4pm (Apr, Oct)
November through March: CLOSED
