Vrsars hidden Sculpture Garden.

During my holiday trip along the croatian coast I found some interesting places. Not just abdoned ones like you have seen before.

One of them is the sculpture park close to Vrsar. At first it was like hmm, is it really ment to be, to go inside because it looks very private from the outside. The fence is high and the door is really massive, but still it is open, nobody inside.

So I just went in and found some nice place, a little stonewall to sit on during I ate my water melon. I was pretty tired at that point.

After some additional refreshments I started to look around and did some nice shots around the garden.

The main interesting point of the sculptures is the way they had been buildt. All the metal sculptures I found are mostly figured out of nails and chains, which links had been weld together.

Also the aluminium polyester sculptures seems like a bunch of piece by piece – never ending work.
