Probably the most rewarding of Split's cultural attractions is Ivan Meštrović's own Gallery, a neo-classical villa built by the man himself in 1931. Not only does it display the range of work created by Croatia's most renowned sculptor - statues large and small, even portraits - and its influences (Classical, folk, Modernist), but it tells his remarkable story as he grew up through what would become Yugoslavia. Visits can be combined with entry to the nearby Kaštelet which houses his religious works.
A bustling hub in Roman times, Split – which is built around an old Roman palace – is full of unique historic and artistic treasures. Split attractions include a number of museums and galleries that make the city a fascinating destination for art aficionados, historians and sightseers alike. Here's where to head.
