museum tour + coffee in Gornji Grad
Join us on a visit to Europe’s most innovative museum, Museum of Broken Relationships! The story is: when Croatian artists Olinka Vištica and Dražen Grubišić broke up in 2010, they were wondering what to do with all the souvenirs that were left and they came up with a perfect idea – to found a museum dedicated to them! The collection consists of their own items, but also of thousands anonymous donations from ex-lovers worldwide who loved the concept of donating memories as a way to recovery from a broken heart. After checking out these objects and stories behind them, we will enjoy a cup of coffee on Gornji Grad and talk about our impressions.

We will start from a mysterious 350 m long tunnel Grič which will lead us to Dolac, where you will practice your Croatian skills and maybe even try bargaining with Zagreb’s kumice!
