“Herman Bolle – Builder of Croatian Capital” will open at the Museum of Arts and Crafts (MUO) on 17 April.
Bolle, who was born in 1845 in Cologne and died in 1926 in Zagreb and of Franco-German descent, played a part in restoring and building a number of Zagreb’s famous landmarks, including the Museum of Arts and Crafts where the exhibition is being held, Mirogoj Cemetery, St Mark’s Church, and Zagreb’s Cathedral.
Bolle ended up working in Croatia after meeting Bishop Josip Juraj Strossmayer and painter Izidor Krsnjavi in Italy. The exhibition will remain open until 23 August. (photo / Zagreb Night – Souvaroff Wikimedia Commons)
