Even battered, bruised, shattered, shelled, devastated, terrorised – Croatia still remains a beauty!

Eyes of the Mind

I visited Croatia in Autumn of 2000 and took a fair number of photos, mostly of the remaining devastation in Vukovar from the 1991-1995 war.  Here is a selection of them (which I have finally transferred from film to digital images).

The fire department in Vukovar, where its defenders took a brave stand.
