Travel Croatia – Abandoned Hotels of Kupari (iPhone 7+ / Moondog Labs Lens / DJI Spark)

Ten minutes drive from Dubrovnik, Croatia you’ll find a small town named Kupari. Bizarrely, it’s home to an H&M, as well as one of the most fascinating and haunting places I’ve been – the abandoned hotels of Kupari. Once frequented by Yugoslavia’s military elite, these five hotels were eventually destroyed during the Croatian War of Independence. They are now just scorched concrete shells of their former glory, covered in graffiti and grown over by nature.

The hotel interiors were eerily quiet, the only sound the intermittent waves of the Adriatic Sea splashing over rocks. Many of the floors bore the marks of conflict, blackened by fire and looted long ago. I couldn’t help but feel a bit sombre while I walked through them, each structure every bit a memorial as any I’ve seen.

If you’re in the area and you like a bit of urban exploration, I can’t recommend this enough. Unlike the Hotel Belvedere near Dubrovnik, the five hotels of Kupari are easily accessible and there were no warning signs posted. A local did approach us and claim she was security and told us to leave, but she was clearly just trying to shoo away two curious explorers. Nice try, lady.
