Spooky island with a dark past: where am I?

Okay friends, let’s play a simple game: I’ve posted some photos below. Just guess where they’re from. Easy, right?

Somewhere along the Dalmatian Coast

That water!

Peaceful landscape

The mansion

What have we here?

Abandoned

Crashing down

Looking in, looking out

The cells

The prison entrance... or exit

Answer:
Located in the Adriatic sea along the gorgeous Dalmatian coast is the former communist hard labor prison camp called Goli Otok. Literally “barren island”. If you have terrazzo tile in your home that dates from 1950ish to the 1980s, there is a good chance it was produced by prison labor here.

Broken chunks of terrazzo litter the entire island.
