Great deal of attentnion goes to the permanent photo exhibition with Tito and his guests in one of the buildings next to the port: it is historic fact that many men and women of world's politics, crowned heads, people of art and entertainment in 20ieth century came to Brijuni to meet with him, hold sessions and make decisions more or less revealed to a commoner.

Himself had spent great deal of his life time on the islands since 1947 when he set foot on Brijuni for first time and almost until death - apart of offical meeting and work, he had a residency here and was growing wines and fruit in one of the smaller island Vanga in a quiet spot with fertile land. He continually returned to Brijuni for relaxing, hunting, fishing, farming and spending time with his friends and guests as well as with some locals... well, immagine the rest. To keep it short: many photos embody his hedonistic approach to life - while other show him standing by side with some of todays still living dictators, with unforgettable Unlisted and/or UN leaders, presidents and glamourous film stars.

All in all... a complex exhibition of one man's (sunny side of) life.

One of the humoruous photos of him holding captured muflon holds title: 'Tito was a passionate hunter and his love for hunting and animals made made him really care for the wildlife (see first photo)'. Well if there isn't some degree of irony in 'being animal lover' and love hunting rare species, then taking picture with you and caught muflon or small leopard on a string like a pet!
