The former home of one of Croatia's greatest painters, Vlaho Bukovac House provides a look into the creative process of a major 19th-century artist. Bukovac spent his entire childhood in this stone house, noted for its well-preserved architecture and gardens. Though he honed his style in Vienna, Paris, and Prague, the celebrated Realist took his earliest artistic steps while living here with his parents and three siblings. Walk inside to see numerous portraits of Bukovac and his family, and take a peek at his upstairs studio, complete with the artist's old easel, brushes, and paints. Put Vlaho Bukovac House on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Cavtat route app.

  • place where you can learn more about and feel better spirit of this great artist. you should not expect a lot of his emblematic art works but the point is in his family, atmosphere etc.

  • We came here to hopefully see some of his actual paintings; we visited Dubrovnik’s MOMAD a few days ago and were disappointed that the permanent collection, which included his paintings, was closed...

  • Really good free internet. I enjoyed the painting displays. It could use a little more furniture in some of the rooms
  • Great depiction of one brilliant artist's life in the house he grew up in. The experience of our visit was brought to a new level by the phenomenal custodian of the Museum who dedicated a bit of her time to tell us the amazing biography of Vlaho Bukovac.
