Vlaho Bukovac House, Cavtat

4.7
The former home of one of Croatia's greatest painters, Vlaho Bukovac House provides a look into the creative process of a major 19th-century artist. Bukovac spent his entire childhood in this stone house, noted for its well-preserved architecture and gardens. Though he honed his style in Vienna, Paris, and Prague, the celebrated Realist took his earliest artistic steps while living here with his parents and three siblings. Walk inside to see numerous portraits of Bukovac and his family, and take a peek at his upstairs studio, complete with the artist's old easel, brushes, and paints.

  • Awesome paintings. Unstable floor.

  • A small museum with an intimate atmosphere, where, without excessive crowds, in peace you can get acquainted with the life and work by this famous Croatian painter. The House is authentic, the walls were painted by I B, and while you climb wooden stairs you can feel like you are going back to the past. If you bring a headset, you can make free use of the online application via mobile phones, so you get and your "Guide".

  • Interesting for lovers of painting 19th... but Bukovac has hardly lived here. On the other hand the collection brings together really some very interesting paintings which deserved to be commented to themselves rather than crammed end-of-tour.
