Art and Design: Five Galleries Not To Be Missed

Split is a city with lot of museums, but there is more on this field than enjoying heritage and artistic master pieces. For example, what to do if you want to buy a piece of art, or design? Here is the brief guide of the most attractive galleries in Split.

Art Gallery Kula

Settled in northwestern corner tower of the Diocletian's Palace, this is one of the most active art venues in Split, with regular exhibitions of the most prominent Croatian and international artists. Also, it's possible to purchase art works through them.

Art Studio Naranča

This small gallery in the northwestern part of the Diocletian's Palace is one of the oldest, but also the most active in Split. Specialty of its owner Pavao Majic are graphics, and he is also a founder of Splitgraphic Biennale, international exhibition. In this gallery a lot of really nice works can be purchased, including original souvenirs way beyond usual "made in China" stuff.

Atelier Botteri & Peruzovic

This gallery is settled a little bit out of the Split historical center. It features mostly works by one of the leading Croatian artists Josip Botteri Dini, known especially for faith inspired painting, and his daughter Ana Marija Botteri Peruzovic.


GetGetGet Concept Store

One of our favourite art and design spots in Split, definitely. If you need a piece of modern, and yet functional design, this is the place for you. You won't find anything mainstream there, but for original memory to bring along? Yes.


OyaNoya Art Gallery

Another centrally positioned place, founded and owned by Split artist Tatjana Bebic. Name of the gallery is derived from a song written and performed by her father, Croatian singer-songwriter with cult status, late Toma Bebic. Tatjana sells art paintings, unique jewellery, clothing, bags and accessories, souvenirs. Another warm recommendation.

FIGA Food Bar Hosts Penis Caricature Exhibition

FIGA is a great place to come for a light snack and a neon cocktail and why not enjoy all the great flavours in the company of penis art hanging on its walls?

The penis caricatures each have a funny name that definitely draws associations to people we have met throughout our lifetime such as Liar, Mommy's Boy, Poisonous, House Type, and the list goes on.

Its unsure how long the exhibition will be on display but pop in for a look around, even if you don't plan to order off the menu.

FIGA Food Bar is located on Buvinina 1 at the end of the popular Dosud street in the palace.
