Mestrovic Gallery was built between 1931 and 1939 and it was designed by Mestrovic himself. Apart from the weddings, Mestrovic Gallery hosts many other events throughout the year. Just like with many other wedding venues, it’s important to book the venue as soon as possible since many couples choose to get married there.
