As you become accustomed to the natural wonders, and the historical architecture in the cities and towns, you’ll begin to notice Croatia’s colourful and amazing art scene that is on public display.
Artistic expression colours every aspect of life in Croatia and has done for hundreds of years. Contemporary artwork masterpieces perfectly compliment the ancient treasures, and theatrical, musical and creative culinary art are also in abundance for you to enjoy.
The 16th century medieval walls of Dubrovnik demand your attention and offer an unforgettable walk around the circumference of the city. The city’s more recent history can be viewed in the form of a collection of photographic images from the world’s most prominent war photographers. Among the dramatic scenes on display is the shelling of Dubrovnik in 1991 and 1992.
The Galerija Marijan showcases the artworks of Croatian sculptor Marijan Kockovic. His bronze and marble sculptures of female forms exude feminine power and mystical appeal. You can view Kockovic’s artistic creations at his home, by appointment.
