Ivan Meštrović Gallery (Split)
A lovely surprise
This was a lovely surprise. Already introduced to Ivan Mestrovic’s work, so didn’t think it’s this good. Location, exterior, sculptures outside, green area in the back of the museum added extra touch to the atmosphere of this place. Walking inside was amazing. We had a tour with a museum’s guide and this is something we recommend to do.
A pleasant surprise
We happened upon this gallery after our walk along the Riva and it was time well spent. We hadn't been familiar with Mestrovic's work, but were very impressed with his sculptures which spanned many Biblical pieces all the way to some lovely Art Deco/Nouveau work. The work itself is wonderfully displayed in a structure that overlooks a sculpture garden and the sea -- all built around a large central staircase. We spent a few hours here and it was time very well spent.
About a mile walk out of town but well worth it. Some majestic sculptures both in the garden and in the museum. All very well presented. Beautiful location surrounded by trees. The cafe looks out over the water.
