Zagreb, Croatia -- Enough of this history and politics stuff. Let's talk about museums. The old city houses many (and all of Zagreb has over 30 in total for about 800,000 inhabitants; if Houston had the same relative to its population, we'd have more than 100.)Several are a stone's throw from St. Mark's square including the former studio of Zagreb's great 20th century sculptor, Ivan Meštrović, who settled here in 1922 (but moved to the US in 1946, teaching at Syracuse and Notre Dame, and, some would say, introducing modern sculpture to the states. His grandson today teaches at Texas A&M and is an expert on war crimes -- as perhaps his grandfather was.)
