This thesis is about the dynamics generated by the Monument to Defenders in Dubrovnik. From the perspective of the anthropology of social memory, the author analyses the interaction between people and the monument, the meanings with which this monument is attributed and practices occurring at the site that treat the monument as a realm of memory. The main goal of the thesis is to show in which way the monument forms the place and what people say about their city and the memory of war through practices and narrations linked to the monument. Ethnographic material is collected on the basis of half-structured and structured interviews, participant observation, the analysis of media sources and tourist brochures of the city of Dubrovnik.
