In 1991 Yugoslavia fell apart in a civil war that lasted until 1995. Especially affected was the region Krajina. In 1991 Serb troops moved in and drove other ethnic minorities out. In 1995 the Croats came back and drove the Serbs out. Results were destroyed towns and abandoned villages. Sometimes new buildings of the enemy were blasted to pieces. The remainders are still widely visible almost 20 years. The castle of the town of Knin played an important role in croatian history. While the castle is beautifully restored and houses three musea, big parts of the town are still in ruins.
