Strossmayer's Gallery of Old Masters - © Matt Field/Time Out
This neo-Renaissance palace, built in 1884 to accommodate Bishop Josip Juraj Strossmayer's private collection of European paintings, is Zagreb's foremost collection of old masters. They are hung in nine intimate rooms on the second floor. Italians fill the first six, with Fra Beato Angelico's Martyrdom of St Peter in room 1, Bellini's newly restored Saints Augustine and Benedict in room 3, and Carpaccio's Martyrdom of St Sebastian right next to it. The collection continues with Flemish (Brueghel), Dutch and German painters, with a final room devoted to the French - Jean Antoine Gros's Portrait of Madame Récamier is the stand-out picture here.
