The best museum in Croatia for art lovers…
Located in Zagreb is an art museum unlike any other. The Croatian Museum of Naïve Art displays around 80 pieces every year all from 20th century Naïve artists, including paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints.
So what is Naïve art? It’s a visual art form created by an untrained artist – someone who has not undergone the formal training or education that professional artists usually have to do. The works displayed are mainly from Croatian artists, but there are a few well-known international artists in the mix as well. Add this unique museum to a custom tour of Croatia today.
For the weird and wonderful…
This museum may not be for everyone, but it is certainly an experience that cannot be missed. Froggyland, found in Split, is a museum full of taxidermied frogs that have been displayed in a variety of different poses and settings. These include a tailor shop, school, the circus and many other different life situations.
The collection consists of 507 stuffed frogs of a common European frog species and perfectly balances the technical knowledge of taxidermy with artistic value. Speak to our travel experts today to learn more about this fascinating museum and how to add it to your Croatian vacation itinerary.
