The Abandoned Hotels of Kupari

Five hotels built in the 1960s in Kupari (https://goo.gl/maps/Ap8UKsXGiw72), once frequented by Yugoslavia’s military elite, sit crumbling into the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea. They’ve now been abandoned for decades.

The once-exclusive holiday resort saw thousands of Yugoslav officers and their families in its heyday. In the early 1990s, during the Croatian War of Independence, the Yugoslav Army destroyed the former beach paradises. After looting each of the five buildings, they systematically burned the hotels down, floor by floor.

The hotels—Grand, Kupari, Goričina, Goričine II, and Pelegrin—had enough room for 1,600 guests at a time. A nearby campsite could hold over 4,000 more. They boasted private villas, too, and even President Josip Broz Tito had a holiday home at Kupari. The resort wasn’t built exclusively for the military elite, but as its popularity grew, booking became increasingly difficult unless one had connections.

Today, the shells of the buildings are now overgrown with ivy, weeds, and trees. The beaches that stretch out before the ruins remain popular, the effects of war still visible to the locals and tourists who frequent the beautiful waters of Croatia.

Star Wars fans will be queuing up at cinemas across the world next week when Star Wars: The Last Jedi is released.

There will be extra interest in Croatia as the city of Dubrovnik was a filming location and will feature in the film playing the ‘casino planet’ Canto Bight.

“Croatia, it was the perfect place to shot Canto Bight. We are in this alleyway in Dubrovnik smashing speeders, and it was just one of those Oh my Gosh what are we doing this is amazing moments.” Writer and Director Rian Johnson said.
