“The Yugoslav army built the big military base on this island. There are around 80 military objects on the island that we know about.

We have a chance to show the most interesting things such as shelter for ships, the site where TANJUG (the Yugoslav news agency) was established, nuclear war command in the middle of the island, missiles bases, underground tunnels.”
