On its website, the War Photo Limited professes its intent is "to educate the public in the field of war photography, to expose the myth of war and the intoxication of war, to let people see war as it is, raw, venal, frightening, by focusing on how war inflicts injustices on innocents and combatants alike." In layman's terms, this museum might be a welcome change from the ancient history on view at Dubrovnik's other top sites.

According to recent travelers, this educational site (though some comment that it is more akin to an art gallery) achieves its purpose; one IgoUgo.com user confesses: "This museum is highly emotional. Make sure to allow yourself time to explore the whole museum, take in the photos, read the descriptions and give yourself extra time to emotionally recover. If you are sensitive to images take it slow and go with someone else. The photos are beautiful and horrifying." The exhibitions focus on modern warfare, featuring lately the violence in the Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The War Photo Limited is right off Stradun in the center of Old Town and only open from April through October. From May to September, you can visit the museum between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. every day; in April and October, the museum is open Wednesday to Monday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission costs 50 kuna (about $8) for adults and 40 kuna (around $6) for students or groups of 10 or more. Check out the museum's website for more details.

#1 City Walls

The first thing you'll see as you approach Dubrovnik from the sky or the sea is the city walls. These ancient fortifications were built and rebuilt in the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries as the threat of Turkish invaders grew. At some points, the walls are almost 20 feet thick and 82 feet high. They enclose the entire Old Town, protected by strategically placed forts and towers.
