Villa Prekrižje was built as a summer residence in 1942. The villa was designed by Ivan Zemljak, one of the leading architects of the modern school of architecture between the two World Wars.
This rustic villa in Gornje Prekrižje is an example of an architectural style focused on using elements of traditional Croatian architecture in both overall design and décor. The interiors designed with pieces specially contracted from local artisans and manufacturers to represent “traditional style” include cast iron lamps, traditional embroidery on textiles and furnishings, country-style trunks of carved wood, and ceramic stoves built to resemble those in country homes. The walls are adorned with paintings by local artists featuring scenes from country living, and the wooden roof is a traditional double-pitched thatched roof.
The rustic villa has been used for formal receptions and activities of the Office of the President of the Republic of Croatia as part of the presidential complex.
Fridays and Saturdays: 4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
