Best Spots for Art Lovers

Kontejner Gallery

Biggest news of the autumn comes from curatorial collective Kontejner. Having spent years as the city's most sophisticated cultural pop-up, Kontejner have finally taken the step of opening a permanent gallery. So-named because their first show was held in a freight container, Kontejner is a typical example of the idea that if institutions aren't capable of creating a vibrant local arts scene, you should go out and do it yourself. The collective has spent the last two decades organizing arts festivals in alternative spaces, bringing together domestic and foreign artists and establishing a formidable international reputation for taking risks and nurturing cutting-edge ideas. The new gallery looks a bit like a bunker when you first arrive, but is bright and spacious enough to showcase the kind of headline-making international artists in which Kontejner specialize. Often highly conceptual, their exhibitions are always visually compelling, and will leave you with something to talk about afterwards. Kontejner, Odranska 1/1, Open Mon-Fri 16:00 - 20:00. Sat 11:00-15:00. Closed Sun.

Gallery Kranjčar 

The gallery is dedicated to exhibiting art works by Croatian contemporary artists. The beautiful and unique contemporary space only adds to the wonderful ambience and setting of the gallery. Supporting the grass roots and home grown talent!
Kaptol 26, Open  Mon - Fri 11:00 - 19:00, Sat 11:00 - 14:00.

The House of Cartoons Oto Reisinger

Caricatures have a way of transcending the usual restrictions of art, and Oto Reisinger was one of the best. This private project is a thrilling love letter to the great man’s works, a career that lasted over 50 years and produced over 50,000 drawings. Reisinger’s award-winning creations were featured in newspapers and magazines worldwide, and this brilliant gallery tells his story with love and energy. Ulica Pavla Radića 44a, Open 10:00 - 22:00.


Occupying a prominent place on cobbled Mesnička, a street which used to have an arty reputation and deserves to have one again, Trotoar was opened by a group of friends with long-standing curatorial backgrounds in May 2023. As well as being well connected with the city's art community, the gallery aims to draw in the passing public and remind Zagreb folk that contemporary art is an organic part of the urban scene. Putting the city's current generation of artists in the spotlight is one of Trotoar's guiding aims, and it's a good place to get an idea of where Zagreb's creative energies currently lie.
Trotoar, Mesnička 7, Open Wed - Fri 11:00 - 19:00, Sat 10:00 - 14:00. Closed Mon, Tues.
