Dubrovnik - War Evidence

During 1991 the city of Dubrovnik, Croatia was damaged by war. After the break-up of Yugoslavia several groups of people had different ideas on how the city and country should be divided and governed.
This lead to an attack on the city by The Yugoslav People's Army. From the top of the hill Dubrovnik received shell fire for over seven months.
Although most of the damage has been restored to meet UNESCO World Heritage standards there is still evidence of war.
Today approximately 90% of the roofs of structures have been replaced. It is easy to find new roofs alongside old.
