Zagreb, Croatia -- Art Nouveau was the rage in Zagreb from 1899 until World War I changed everything. The Ethnographical Museum shown here is one of its outstanding examples. (Note the frayed edges at right. Under the communists, many of these outstanding exteriors deteriorated and are being restored as funds become available.) This building was designed by architect Vjekoslav Bastl. He and Viktor Kovaci were the prime leaders of Zagreb's flavor of the Vienna Art Nouveau branch called Secessionist architecture.
