Gradac

... the administrative and tourist center of the riviera with the most beautiful and the longest beaches...

Twn of Gradac is a tourist hub of Gradac Riviera. Old settlement has been around since prehistoric times. Stone slabs from the Bronze and later Iron Age can testify to that fact. In Classical antiquity, Roman Civitas Biston existed in the location of Gradac. Old coastal hub of the Narona colony was an important Roman stronghold in this part of the Adriatic. Specimens of Roman money, and a rim part of a monumental structure from 2nd-3rd century were found at Gradina locality.

In medieval times in Gradac region there stood an old town of Lapčan (Labinac), which is mentioned by the great Byzantine emperor Constantin. Under its current name, Gradac is mentioned for the first time in 1649. It owes its name to a fortress that once stood on a high ground above today’s church of St. Michael, built during the Cretan war (1645-1669). There is a preserved drawing that depicts a naval-land battle between the Turks and Venetians near Gradac in 1666. On that drawing the tower was set ablaze.

In an abandoned village of Čista above Gradac one can find remains of deserted houses built in indigenous architectural style. One of the oldest preserved structures in Gradac region is a chapel of St. Paškvalin on Plana hill. Beside an old parish church of St. Anthony is the local cemetery. And new church of St. Michael was built in 1852. Tradition of Gradac’s tourist offer secured that tourism is developing rapidly in this part of the Riviera where one can find a stretch of hotels and catering contents, and of course the center of entertainment and night life.

Tourist board of Igrane

Right here where the rock kisses the sea and the wave cuddless with a shore, where the campanile bell announces a next dawn… as for us all and for you, stroller and traveller…

So, 'till you get to know a Croatian name, all those Romans, Illyrians and Dalmat tribes have left their traces. During the 7th century a new history has been written, by the arrival of Croats and their flag adorns every church. In the 12th century Marković family of Krajina area managed to save „A Doclean monk Chronicle“ (Croatian Chronicle) that tells about Red Croatia, presents life and death of the King Zvonimir and stands for the one of the most important written document in the Croatian history. So, through the year 1466 a Croatian ruler Herceg Stjepan Kosača, for the first time mentions Igrane, a little village with 50 peasants.

All those peasants, fishermen, builders and soldiers who defended and preserved, for us and for all the visitors, this playful jewel in the wreath of stone… snd the Tower of Zale Antičić and Tomica from the times of the battle against Ottoman Empire, not to forget baroque palace of Ivanišević-Šimić family and also a castle with a chapel…

And what to say about the campanile that touches the sky, solid as a rock?! So, down there, a gardens and courts, houses and apartmens, almonds and flowers, vine cellars, restaurants, fishing nets and boats, white beaches and bays… bathing in the sunny stream. Anyway, take a good look, there's a Hotel „Punta“, like a point of desire awaits to embrace you with all its love…like a breez cuddles with every wave…

With an opened hearth, Igrane calls you to its flourishing gardens.

Ivan Meštrović Gallery

Ivan Meštrović Gallery

The gallery is part of the donation made by Ivan Meštrović to the Republic of Croatia in 1952 (along with a family house and studio in Zagreb -the Meštrović Atelier, the Crikvine-Kaštilac sacral and art complex in Split, and the Meštrović family vault - the Most Holy Redeemer Church - near Otavice).

Ivan Meštrović conceptualised the present gallery in Meje (a prestigious part of Split) as a family home, studio, and gallery space; it was built between 1931 and 1939. He surrounded the house with a Mediterranean garden decorated with bronze sculptures. The whole complex offers a unique view of the sea and the central Dalmatian islands. Ivan Meštrović and his family spent their summers there from 1932 onwards.

The gallery contains the artist’s masterpieces executed in marble (Psyche, 1927; Contemplation, 1924), bronze (Distant Chords, 1918; Cyclops, 1933; Persephone, 1946; Madonna and Child, 1917; Job 1946), wood (Sad Angels and Happy Angels, 1916) and gypsum (Pietà, 1946). These works cover all the periods of the artist’s rich creative life until 1946.

The permanent exhibition is arranged spatially and thematically. The central hall on the ground floor is decorated as an impressive entrance space, adorned with mostly marble sculptures. The dining room retains the original character of the artist’s home. It contains Meštrović’s furniture, a few paintings, and bronze portraits of family members.

The large exhibition hall on the east side of the ground floor is devoted to religious sculpture, an important theme in Meštrović’s art. This hall is dominated by wooden sculptures of Adam and Eve (1939-1941). Besides this religious exhibition, there is a special area given to the monumental sculpture of the Pietà.

Upstairs, in the hall of the west wing, Meštrović’s works that were influenced by Impressionism, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco are exhibited. The east hall combines sculptures made mostly between the two world wars. Next to this there is an interesting special hall with the theme of Job. The grand central hall on the first floor is intended for sculpture exhibitions, but also for occasional cultural events in the gallery. The permanent exhibition of sculptures on the first floor is also accompanied by Meštrović’s drawings.

In addition to museum materials (sculptures, drawings, paintings, architectural drawings, and furniture), the gallery also holds documents related to the life and work of Ivan Meštrović – photos of the artist’s first works recorded at the beginning of the 20th century in Vienna and Paris. Archival material is also presented, primarily the family archives found in the house in 1952, containing the letters of family members and friends, their personal documents, and other papers.
