Croatia's cities and towns could double as open-air art museums. Works by world-famous graffiti artists, as well as ingenious amateurs, capture eyes across the country. Street art, by nature, tends to come and go. Sun, rain and wind take their toll, buildings undergo reconstruction, new murals replace old. Take in the best of Croatian street art - some of which is now gone - with our gallery of 62 photos including lifelike portraits, marvelous mazes of geometric shapes and way-out abstracts.
