One of the massive hotels at the bay of Kupari, the Grand Hotel, was built in 1920. It housed 139 beds and featured an indoor swimming pool and luxurious rooms with stunning ocean views. Today, the tourist complex lay in ruins, scarred from attacks during the Croatian War of Independence in the early 1990s.
Over time, nature crawled back to this once prominent structure. Weeds grew in the cavernous halls where glitzy balls were once held, and the former reception area is overgrown with trees. In front of the beach, the Grand Hotel stands as an indelible mark of the ruins of wars.
