The Art Trail: Zagreb

Zagreb Art Guide HDLUTemporary Exhibition Spaces

Trg žrtava fašizma bb, website

The Croatian Association of Visual Artists (HDLU) organizes several temporary exhibitions each year. The building itself is also worth visiting for its unique form and fascinating history. Designed by sculptor Ivan Meštrović, it was the first round exhibition hall in the region. Though it was originally conceived as an exhibition space, the pavilion has been altered several times over the course of Croatia’s tumultuous history. During World War II it served as a mosque, and after the war it became the Museum of the Revolution. It was not until the 1990s that the pavilion was returned to the Croatian Association of Visual Artists.

Hours: Tuesday – Friday 11am – 7pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am – 2pm

Admission: Adults 20 HRK; Students and Seniors 10 HRK

Zagreb Art Guide Art Pavilion

Art Pavilion
Trg Kralja Tomislava 22, website

Sitting at the north end of beautifully landscaped King Tomislav Square, this yellow Neo-Baroque building makes quite a welcome statement if you happen to arrive by train. Built for the 1896 Millennium exhibition in Budapest, the iron-framed building was shipped back to Zagreb, thanks to the suggestion of painter Vlaho Bukovac, to serve as an exhibition space for the city’s growing community of artists. The Pavilion now hosts a regular rotation of temporary exhibitions.

Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 7pm, Sunday 10am – 1pm

Admission: Adults 30 HRK; Students and Seniors 15 HRK; Family Ticket 50 HRK

Rabat, Morocco

Print Rabat, Morocco’s capital city, is flush with history and culture unbeknownst to the many Morocco-bound tourists who flock to Tangiers and Casablanca. For those who venture off the beaten path, however, Rabat will prove just as rewarding.
