We visited this museum whilst visiting Cavtat. It is not easy to find, and there are steps up to it, but it is worth the effort. The lady on reception was very helpful and welcoming. The house itself is fascinating, with some of the rooms...More

We had never come across the name Bukovac but it's not everyday you can visit an artist's family home and studio. The visit was even covered by the Dubrovnik Card as was our bus ride. The wall paintings were bizarre, apparently done by the young...More

My partner and I both enjoyed our visit here. We found it easy to retrieve the guided tour on our phones using the wi-fi. We used our Dubrovnik 3 day card here, and we preferred Vlaho Bukovac House over the art museums in Dubrovnik itself....More

Knew nothing about bukovac previous to our visit. His work is always interesting and sometimes disturbing. Whole house brought to life by informative audio commentary

The house is up a short hill from the main port of Cavtat. The walk is well worth it- the house affords a nice cool break from the heat and is full of wall and other art and some personal possessions. I'd not heard of...More

Loved this museum. It is half way up one of the the wee side streets and worth a visit. They have free WiFi you can use as they use barcodes for the narrative that tells you all about everything as you walk around. Inside the...More

We visited this museum not knowing much at all about the artist who had lived there but this soon changed as we explored the fascinating house set in a peaceful garden. As well as a good array of artwork, there are still some items of...More

Vlaho Bukovac is a legend of the Croatian painting world and this is the house he was raised in. It has a fascinating history or his murals from childhood and pieces of his work from throughout his career. Some special pieces and some that are...More

Hi Albert - there are a couple of restaurants serving Asian food as part of their menu, Kamen Mali and Konoba Toranj, but we didn't see any Chinese restaurants. Dubrovnik might be a better option - 30 mins on bus from... More

Same advice as previous person. The street is between the rows of shops to the left side of the town street from the harbour. If you see the main town square (probably with stalls on it) then go to the righ of this and you... More
