Zagreb Rocket Attacks Memorial Centre was opened in May 2013. In memory of civilians which were killed and wounded during the 1991 and 1995 Croatian War of Independence attacks. In the hope that it never happens again.
The centre showcases the 1991 bombing of Banski dvori and 1995 Zagreb rocket attacks.
The 1991 bombing of Banski dvori was an assassination attempt at Croatian President Franjo Tuđman and current political leadership.
The second, 1995 rocket attacks were a retaliation attack. The only time cluster bombs were used during the war. It was a series of two rocket attacks targeted specifically against civilians.
The attack took place in the aftermath of Croatia’s successful military operation Flash. In order to prevent Croatia military advance.
The Memorial Centre permanent exhibition showcases documentary films, newspaper articles and artefacts saved after the attacks.
You will get to see rocket pieces that landed on the Children’s Hospital, the Croatian National Theatre and other civilian institutions in Zagreb.
