Galerija Klovićevi Dvori


Hosting a swath of temporary exhibitions throughout the year, this gallery, housed in a former Jesuit monastery, is among the city’s most prestigious art spaces. Check if anything's on while you're in town. Past exhibits have included Picasso and Chagall, as well as collections by prominent Croatian fine artists. The gallery’s atrium hosts concerts in July as part of the Evenings on Grič festival. There's a nice cafe here also.
