Read about Ivan Mestrovic, a renowned Croatian sculptor & saw his works in St Mark's church when we attended mass there before we headed towards this gallery, Mestrovic Atelier on 6 Nov.

You get a taste in the courtyard of the artist's house. Enter, buy your tickets and pick up the map to find the name of each sculpture.
We enjoyed our visit to this famous sculptor's lovely home where a collection of his work is represented. Not knowing much about him or his life, I think it would have been more meaningful if we had had a guide to give us more information and answer some of our questions.

I love the sculptures by Rodin and know that Mestrovic was greatly influenced by him. This Atelier has a very good selection of the sculptures by Mestrovic and really enjoyed the exhibit. I would recommend this exhibit to anyone who appreciates good art.

I must admit that I didn't know much about Mestrovic before going to Zagreb, but local people recommended me the museum and it was definitely a good tip. The atelier is hosted in the beautiful house where Mestrovic lived, and there are plenty of sculptures and drawings from the great artist to see. A must see place for art lovers.
