One wonders if one should share this. But it is a monument to the civil war that was only 17 years ago. The central building we were told had been a palace for Austro/Hungarian nobility, later a hotel then the 3 huge hotels were built...More

Amazing beach if you want to get away from it all. Also a stark reminder of war! Behind the beach are three hotels shells of their former selves a reminder of what war destroys.

A strange place to visit ! however very thought-provoking. This holiday village was annihilated during the Yugoslavian conflict. Just wander around and use your imagination and creativity to fill in the blanks as to how this / these hotels would have looked in their hayday.

Interesting ruins of former Yugoslav army resort destroyed in 1991 Balkans conflict, lots of people exploring but go careful as some floors damaged by shelling which aren't obvious.

But in light of the war in the 80s was poignant to visit especially as plans are afoot to bulldoze the area and build a 5* Marriot hotel there, retaining only the old military building. Pebbly beach but clear warm water in a historically interesting...More

We found this beach on trip advisor and were intrigued by the abandoned former Yugoslav military hotels. It’s an amazing back drop to quite a nice beach. You are able to buy sun loungers and umbrellas at a cheap price(I think 60 kuna each). As...More

I am with Joanne H from Sheffield - this intriguing historical backdrop to a nice beach (my family loved swimming and sunbathing there) lends a massive significance, & might it be a better world if we valued such things? One of best local beaches in...More

The beach is lovely but the really interesting thing in this area is the ruined former military holiday resort. The shells of 5 luxury hotels which would be boarded off for Health & Safety if they were in the UK but which you can wander...More

On boat and ask to be dropped at Srebeno or Mlini . Mlini is furthest but only 10-15 minutes walk along sea by path or get bus to Srebeno and fork right at beach and it's a five minute walk.
