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.

  • The House-workshop of a painter, we see the first drawings-frescoes he did child on the walls. More you go from room to room, the more the impression to become one of his friends, to be part of his world. Audio/lecto free guide (via wifi), excellently done. A visit which is really worth the trip by bus from Dubrovnik (it is to the airport, it therefore takes about 45 minutes away). Note that bus round trip and visit are free with the Dubrovnik Card.
