Second day of Sightseeing in Zagreb

After an early morning walk around the Lower Town it was off to that Crotian Museum of Naïve Art.  Naïve Art is art which is simplistic, and usually very colourful, often the artists have had no formal training.

The art was beautiful, some of the pieces reminded me of our own indigenous art as it was done with little dots. I liked it so much that I went to the local artists’ Naïve Gallery and bought a small painting. It is actually painted on the back of glass.

I then visited St Mark’s Church and the stopped for morning tea on the terrace of a little gallery before going to the Dolac Markets which are on every day.

It was then off to the Museum Ivan Meštroviĉ , which is the former 17th Century  home of the local artist. The house has some lovely wood features including staircases and frescoes. Meštroviĉ was also an architect and designed part of the house. It contains, sculptures, lithographs and paintings.

After lunch which I had in a Street Food Café I took a tram ride on the circuit which went out to the suburbs.

When I arrived back at the main square there was a display of local goods put on by the Tourist Association.

It was then a wander around the main square for an evening meal in a local restaurant.
