The Modern Gallery

This is Modrena Galerija (The Modern Gallery) – a museum that holds one of the most exquisite and important collections of Croatian art of 19th and 20th century. It is placed in the Vranyczany palace near park Zrinjevac. The museum was opened in 1905. and was recently restored with a new permanent exhibition.
Last month I saw a very interesting exhibition there, City Iconography about the motif of a city in Croatian paintings, photography, movies etc. I was really pleasantly surprised on how it was presented.
So, if you are in town and would like to explore Croatian art, this museum is a ''must see''.
