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

Second time here and in between we found out a bit more about the artist. Even if you don’t like art the house is worth a visit for the painted walls. Fascinating personality and a talented artist. Don’t miss it! Also, it is included with...More

I thought that this house would be boring but once there it was a very charming Croation house, with lots of Character.

Such an interesting place with many of his paintings which were so well displayed. The house is much larger than you think and on several levels and the murals are a surprise. I was very impressed with the studio which had a large window and...More
