Goveđari – Mljet`s first gallery



Goveđari – Mljet`s first galleryA multifunctional gallery, under the name ‘Stara Skula’ has recently opened on one of the most beautiful islands of the Adriatic `the green island of Mljet`, in the picturesque village of Goveđari. The exhibition space dates back to the last century, when it housed a school for the pupils from the island and later the local post office. Now, this exhibition space will hold various exhibitions, film projections, concerts, video installations, guest speaker presentations, literary evenings etc throughout the year. The gallery, built in Dalmatian stone, is located inside an architecturally unusual house in the centre of the village Goveđari, upon a green hill covered in pine and palm trees, which rises above the Veliko and Malo lakes and together with the surrounding villages makes up the National Park Mljet.

In September, Stara Skula - the first gallery in Mljet - will host an alternative group from Europe, which has recognized the quietness, vegetation, sea and calming colours of nature as an ideal place for meditation, yoga and a different way of life.

The owners of the gallery also offer boutique accommodation and their hospitality has been recognized by foreign guests which have recommended it to the most influential travel website, tripadvisor.com. Mljet is the eighth biggest Croatian island located not far from Pelješac peninsula, Dubrovnik and the island of Korčula. It is a Mediterranean area with dry summers and mild winters, with almost close to 2500 hours of sunshine a year, which makes it one of the sunniest islands on the Adriatic.

Many consider it to be the most beautiful and most forested island on the Adriatic, as well as one of the most attractive cultural and historical pearls of the Mediterranean. It is visited by couples in love, adventurists, explorers of nature and lovers of history and legends.
