The former home and studio of Dalmatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović is set in a charming 17th-century townhouse, where he lived and worked from 1924 to 1942. Inside, you can see a vast array of his output, including preparatory sketches and sculptures of famous people and religious figures. Meštrović fled the country during the Second World War, and ended up living in the United States, where he worked as a professor of sculpture at the University of Notre Dame. He died in 1962, regarded as Croatia’s greatest 20th-century sculptor.
