Ivan Mestrović Gallery tour

Start your day by exploring the former summer house of Croatia's greatest sculptor, Ivan Meštrović, that has been turned into a stunning gallery on 2 floors with a courtyard.
After learning the basics about the artist's biography you will start exploring the courtyard. "Distant cords", "Persephone" and "Cyclops" are one of the highlights of this area. Climbing up to the stairs we reach the entrance to the Gallery itself and continue learning about Meštrović's upbringing, early life, village mindset, his travels, his friendship with Rodin and much more.
After exploring both floors of the gallery, you will be given some free time to enjoy the area on your own, before you proceed to walk down the road to explore another area called Kaštilac, which was also owned by Ivan Meštrović. This 16th century building has been turned into a stunning mini gallery with remarkable wooden reliefs on display as well as a soothing view of the Adriatic just below.

Regardless of your stance on art, we are certain you will fall in love with this gallery and after hearing our professional guide's stories, you will be left wondering how is it, that Meštrović still remains unknown worldwide.
