The former home of one of Croatia's greatest painters, Vlaho Bukovac House provides a look into the creative process of a major 19th-century artist. Bukovac spent his entire childhood in this stone house, noted for its well-preserved architecture and gardens. Though he honed his style in Vienna, Paris, and Prague, the celebrated Realist took his earliest artistic steps while living here with his parents and three siblings. Walk inside to see numerous portraits of Bukovac and his family, and take a peek at his upstairs studio, complete with the artist's old easel, brushes, and paints.

  • The house is beautiful, the art is stunning. The gift shop is adorable and inexpensive. It's not interactive but if you value art, you'll be pleased with the offered. Definitely worth visiting.
  • A good selection of paintings and explanation cards in English. Some lovely wall paintings as well. Well worth a visit.
