The Embassy of Croatia regularly participates in Doors Open. Set in the Sandy Hill neighbourhood on a quiet street, it occupies Toller House, an 1875 Gothic Revival home that has seen many uses, and is named after one of its earlier owners.
It's working space most of the time for the diplomatic mission, with large photographs of the country on the walls, and a welcoming sensibility to the place. There was a table set out with a multitude of tourism information on the country, and embassy staffers answering questions.
This is a rather unusual humidifier, dating back to the 1880s for the house when it was owned by a judge, Telesphore Fournier. It's still operable, with water starting on the top tray and dripping down to those below.
On one of the walls hangs this set of painted tiles.
One more view of the house, taken upon my departure.
