A museum dedicated to broken hearts has opened in Croatia.

Drazen Grubisic and Olinka Vistica decided to set up the museum after consoling friends over their failed romances.

Items on display at the museum in Zagreb include letters and mementoes.

Grubisic said: "We’ve never heard of such a museum and hope that it will be a form of therapy for all those people with broken hearts. We have collected mementoes, letters and different things from numerous people who have lost their loves.

"The museum has everything from romantic and touching letters to different gifts given to lovers like teddy bears and photos. Every single object on display has a full description of the relationship that was behind it and how that person has moved on. That’s why we think it could be therapeutic for those with newly broken hearts."
