I was not familiar with this artist, but you can see echoes of Rodin and others contemporaries in his figures. It's a nice place to stop by while in the Old Town, but admittedly it was cold and we were looking for indoor activities. Worth the nominal entrance fee. No idea what the upstairs is like, as it was closed... More

Read about Ivan Mestrovic, a renowned Croatian sculptor & saw his works in St Mark's church when we attended mass there before we headed towards this gallery, Mestrovic Atelier on 6 Nov. How to get there? It is within the vicinity of the Upper Town, you can either take a funicular or walk up to the Upper Town. It is... More

Mestrovic Gallery is the most important museum in Zagreb with one of the most important monuments of sculptor Ivana Mestrovic. Unfortunately, the visit to the museum is very poor

You get a taste in the courtyard of the artist's house. Enter, buy your tickets and pick up the map to find the name of each sculpture.

We enjoyed our visit to this famous sculptor's lovely home where a collection of his work is represented. Not knowing much about him or his life, I think it would have been more meaningful if we had had a guide to give us more information and answer some of our questions. It does seem to be a very popular tourist... More

We had seen some of his work but were unprepared for the stunning and overwhelming beauty and power of his collected works. He had known Rodin and we saw some of the overlapping influence of another great sculptor. The collection is housed in his old home and that in and of itself is beautiful. It's located in the upper town... More

I love the sculptures by Rodin and know that Mestrovic was greatly influenced by him. This Atelier has a very good selection of the sculptures by Mestrovic and really enjoyed the exhibit. I would recommend this exhibit to anyone who appreciates good art.

The house itself is worth a look on its own even if you have no taste for sculpture, but for me this is a really special collection of work, strong in form, yet still rich in detail.
