Zagreb Vis a Vis

Quite by accident we ended up at an exhibition launch last night.

(it seems to me that I start a lot of blog posts with ‘quite by accident’)

Institute Francais

Held at the Institut Francais, the exhibition showcases jewellery made by the Jewellery Friends Club. The Club took France as their inspiration, with pieces reflecting French literature, geography, culture and history.

The French Ambassador was there, as was a sizeable crowd of Croatians. I think the organisers were surprised at how successful the evening was. Everyone had a glass of wine and a cheesey croissant and all in all it was a bit of a smashing do.

There really is always something on in Zagreb.

The exhibition runs until 3 November at the Institut Francais. As far as I know, the pieces aren’t currently for sale, but the Jewellery Friends Club will be selling other unique pieces at the Christmas markets later in the year.

  1. Hi Nat,

    I am a television producer working on the US travel show ‘House Hunters International’. We are looking for English speaking expats who have recently moved to Croatia to feature on our show. I wonder if you might like to share your story?

    House Hunters International is a half-hour TV show currently airing on the Home and Garden Television Network (HGTV) in America. The series is designed to de-mystify the international home-buying / renting process, by going behind the scenes of a house hunt where expats and their real estate agents tour 3 homes. At its core, House Hunters International is a travel show concentrating on the idiosyncrasies of the locales and what makes them special and different.

    Here is a link to show you what our show is all about!

    We would love to film in Zagreb so please get in touch if you or any of your contacts might be interested in finding out more!

    Best wishes,


    Michelle James
    1-3 St Peter’s Street, London N1 8JD – +44 20 7704 3300
