Meštrović Gallery information
At this stellar art museum, you’ll see a comprehensive, well-arranged collection of works by Ivan Meštrović, Croatia’s premier modern sculptor, who built the gallery as a personal residence from 1931 to 1939. Although Meštrović intended to retire here, he emigrated to the USA soon after WWII. Don’t miss the nearby Kaštelet , a fortress that Meštrović bought and restored to house his powerful Life of Christ wood reliefs.
