GOLI & GRGUR, PRISON ISLANDS
Croatian Alcatraz, Goli otok, meaning "naked island", is a barren, uninhabited island, located in the Senj door, area of the most powerful winds of the entire Adriatic.
That is why, together with the nearby island of st. Gregory, it was the perfect place to open the most cruel, high-security, top secret political prisons and labor camps.
Today these islands are deserted, and testify the intolerance of the communist regime of the former Yugoslavia.
