Croatia is a fascinating country which offers art and culture [VIDEO], glorious beaches and seaside resorts and plenty of history.

The country also has its more unusual side, which can be seen from the following attractions. There is everything from a museum dedicated to broken relationships, to another which is home to hundreds of stuffed frogs. Relaxing music can be enjoyed from an organ powered by the sea and wind and there are two formerly impenetrable prisons to be visited.

Museum of Broken Relationships - Ćirilometodska 2,
 Zagreb, Croatia

The Museum of Broken Relationships was formed by two Croatian artists, Drazen Grubisic and Olinka Vistina when they separated. They were reluctant to part with sentimental keepsakes of their relationship so they opened the museum to display them. The idea soon took off as the museum went on tour, with people all over the country donating their reminders of a broken heart. The museum now has a permanent home in Zagreb, where it displays letters, teddy bears, a woman’s tears and much more.

Froggyland - Ul. Kralja Tomislava 5, Split, Croatia

Froggyland is a collection of stuffed frogs, doing things humans would normally do, including construction work, playing tennis, circus displays and more. There are 507 stuffed frogs in the collection, arranged in 21 different cases. Ference Mere is a Hungarian taxidermist who spent 10 years stuffing and arranging the frogs in different layouts. He finished the project in 1920 and at that time there were approximately 1,000 frogs. The work, while eccentric, is truly remarkable.
