The most interesting features of this modest residence were the frescoes the artist had painted on the walls of most of the rooms when he was a teenager. Here a tiger strode along faux wainscoting; there a self-portrait at 17 gazed down from the wall...More

There is not much here, but what there is is extremely impressive. I had never heard of Bukovac and I am ashamed of my ignorance. He appears to have had a life worthy of the Hollywood treatment. Nevertheless his painting is a testament to his...More

I have to admit I did not know anything about the painter Vlaho Bukovac before. However, the entry is included in the Dubrovnik card (i.e. its free), so I went there when visiting Cavtat (btw the return bus ticket Dubrovnik-Cavtat is also included in the...More

A glimpse into the life of one of Croatia's leading artists. A number of his works are on display here. The smartphone audio guide is useful too.

We knew nothing about this artist before we came here but the museum was great! As a group of people with varying interest in art we all enjoyed it. It really gave good context to the paintings and despite being a smaller museum was very...More

My wife and I both enjoyed viewing Mr. Bukovac's works spread throughout the house. The house held a great deal of charm.

Make sure you get the wifi code and audio guide otherwise you'll be in and out very quickly. Best bit for me was the roomful of paintings on the top floor. As you often find with birthplaces the really good art isn't here, it's in...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
