If you plan to visit Cavtat, the first place of interest will be the birth house of Vlaho Bukovac (Kuca Bukovac), the most famous Croatian painter ever. The Bukovac house, where Vlaho spent his young age, is today's museum which exhibits his artwork.

How to get to Kuca Bukovac

If you are going to Cavtat from Dubrovnik, it's quite easy to reach the town. You just need to drive on the Adriatic road D8 in the south direction. It will take approximately half an hour to get there. You can leave your car in the centre of the place with the parking price of 5 kuna/hour. The address of the museum is Bukovceva 5.

Opening hours of the museum are variable in 2020, because of coronavirus influence. In May, the museum's working hours are 9 - 18.
Check the updated information on the official site of the museum and their facebook site.

The ticket price for adults is 25 HRK, and for children and students is 15 HRK.
If you decide to buy Dubrovnik Card, you have a ticket for Kuca Bukovac included, as well as a bus ride from Dubrovnik to Cavtat and back.

The museum exhibition takes place on two floors. The first floor features Bukovac's drawings, while the second floor features his pictures - as you will see, those are true masterpieces. Even if you are not an expert in art, you will enjoy the exhibition.
You can also expect a polite museum manager, who will tell you more about Vlaho's life, which was not easy. Since he was born in a poor family, Vlaho was working as a waiter in a restaurant at an early age, until his art got recognised in Croatia, and later in the whole world.

The most interesting place to visit after Kuca Bukovac is the Mausoleum of the family Racic, built by famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic.
Church of Our Lady of the Snows is a nice architectural achievement worth visiting as well.

Cavtat is one of the most beautiful small coastal towns in Croatia tourism. Many people decide to spend their entire holidays in Cavtat, staying there for a week or longer. Others stay only for one night, or just take a day trip if they accommodated themselves in Dubrovnik.

If you are staying in Dubrovnik, we recommend Hilton Imperial Hotel, luxury accommodation option near the centre of Dubrovnik.
