Croatia accommodation and culture

Guests in search of history and culture during a self-catering Croatia holiday should visit the eerily exciting, yet educational so-called ‘Adriatic bunkers’ near Zadar. The site comprises thirty former military objects and dates back to the 20th Century, when it was built by Italians. The seventy year old bunkers are steeped in history and are still in good condition today. They were used during the nineties by local residents in homes and apartments Dalmatia seeking protection during the Yugoslavian war. The locals discovered that the bunkers lead to a series of underground passages and thoughts have since turned to how the bunkers can be used today. Proposals have included using them for tourism, such as utilising the space for cafes, taverns and restaurants. However, it has since been decided that they should remain as a memorial for future generations.
