  Marsala Tita

More evidence of the ravages of the recent war can be seen along many of the street to the east and west. Just walk along Marsala Tita, mere metres from the Old Town and you will see evidence of the war. While much of the Old Town has been rebuilt and restored, many of the areas away from the river still resemble a war zone with shelled buildings and derilict hotels and houses still left abandoned and boarded up.
While the charms of the Old Town are what most come to see, it is important to remember that it is only 16 years ago that this town was a war torn area. The city is moving on but reminders of it's not so distant troubles are still very much in evidence. I'm not what some would term a 'disaster tourist' but to learn about the city, one must investigate all aspects of it's history - past, present and future.
