Ivan Mestrovic is the author of Grgur Ninski sculpture (Gregory of Nin) near the north (Golden) gate of Diocletian’s palace.
The Bowman and the Spearman, also known as Indians standing as gatekeepers in Congress Plaza, at the intersection of Congress Drive and Michigan Avenue in Grant Park, Chicago, United States are probably the most famous works of this author.
Ivan Mestrovic – The Bowman
Ivan Mestrovic Gallery is a must for all art and sculpture lovers.
Situated only ten minutes walk from city center, it is an oasis of peace, quiet and contemplation.
If you don’t want to walk, there is a bus from Church of Sv.Frane to the gallery.
The garden where his expressive and lifelike statues, often compared to Rodin’s are displayed is only a part of the exhibition.
There is also his studio and a gallery on two levels.
We recommend you take a guided tour. Although some might find it expensive, it is not a “scripted” tour most galleries have. You will enjoy almost a private tour and be able to put things in perspective regarding artist’s state of mind, political and social circumstances etc.
If you have a car and want to go to a place where the money goes, visit club Hemingway near Poljud stadium.
It is quite a fancy place, rather expensive, with an indoor and outdoor space, clean design and up-to-date music for those who like to dance.
Caffe bar Gaga is located right behind the Ethnographic Museum in the very center of Split, on a square called Pjaca (pronounced like Piazza).
It’s name has nothing to do with Lady Gaga, it is the nickname of it’s founder.
This is a place where you go to “see and be seen”, to hear the latest gossip over a cup of espresso or a cocktail.
Often a starting point for a night on a town.
Oh, forgot to mention – there’s a free WiFi internet access.
We’re back and we’re going global…
SplitAtNight.com changes it’s language from Croatian to English in order to become more friendly and useful to our visitors from around the world.
In the past few years, Split has changed considerably. From a transit point, where people would just jump from a plane to a ferry, Split is now a city that tourists want to stay in.
There are over 300 newly opened small hotels and apartments, streets are crowded and buzzing, music and laughter everywhere… Split is the town to visit.
In order to help our guests, we are going to publish information about every event that we get to know about, we’ll recommend places to visit and places to avoid… the works.
Stay tuned, there’s a lot more to come 🙂
