Did you know that Zagreb has the 'Museum of broken relationships'?

In the historic core of Zagreb, the Upper Town, there is a place that takes great pride in an exhibition which usually shatters everyone’s perception of what can be found in a museum. Driven by curiosity, we made our way to the museum to see what it is all about and what makes this place a symbol of modern culture in Zagreb. Not even in our wildest dreams did we expect exhibits such as an axe and a teddy bear in the same room, right next to each other, each with his own tale revealing years of emotional closeness and intimacy between two people - in only one paragraph or even just one word. There are plenty of unusual and unexpected objects exhibited, which haven't made a scientific impact nor have a historic value. However, these items stand as a symbol of philosophy that teaches us that – as trifling as they are – they can be of great sentimental value to us; making this museum interesting to all types of visitors. These items are minor testimonies of personal relationships and the stories that bring people together on an emotional level, maybe even with a person from the other side of the world. An idea that we can all relate to. After all, everyone has been through a heartbreak. Especially intriguing is the fact that anyone can donate their personal item as a symbol of resolving unwanted current emotions and turn it into a museum exhibit. This way, your item will tell your tale whether it’s bizarre or common, touching or humorous.

After visiting the museum, while contemplating about getting rid of a certain item from your collection, the Hotel Raca team surely can recommend a nice nearby restaurant to replenish or a bar to relax with a cup of coffee and a dessert. Makes it easier to make up your mind...
