Galerija Meštrović houses the masterpieces of Ivan Meštrović carved in marble, bronze and wood. The house was built based on Meštrović's design (1931 - 1939), and was intended to be his family summer residence, working studio and exhibition space. It is surrounded by a Mediterranean garden which, with its bronze sculptures and the view of the sea and of central Dalmatian islands makes a unique example of landscape architecture.

I didn't know a lot about Mestrovic to be honest. I went there and lost it. Everything is lovely, the view is from a movie and it's not that crowded.

So glad we visited this gallery. It is an easy walk from the old town area and well worth seeing. The building itself is as beautiful as the art.
