Opened in the summer of 2006 on the ground floor of the Cibona Tower, this museum is dedicated to Croatia’s greatest athlete. Dražen Petrović captained Zagreb team Cibona to multiple European championships, won three Olympic medals and became the first Croat to play in the NBA. In 1993, he died in a car accident, aged 28. He was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame a decade later. The museum houses most of his trophies, medals and memorabilia, and describes his career in English and Croatian. The space itself is minimalist in a tasteful, modern way, and captures the positive energy Petrović brought to the game. It’s a nice, off-the-beaten-path experience which can be combined with a visit to the Technical Museum.
