Museum of Ancient Glass
Housed in a restored 19th-century palace, the Museum of Ancient Glass (which faces the Jazine harbor, filled with expensive yachts) is home to one of the world's best collections of ancient Roman glass. When Croatia was part of the Roman Empire and known as Dalmatia, its glass was renowned. The museum's collection includes artifacts found at archaeological sites all over Croatia—from delicate pieces of jewelry to large goblets and jars. There's also a glassblowing workshop and a gift shop with replicas of the ancient pieces on display.
