In 1974, Božidar Jakac Art Museum was established in renovated premises previously a Cistercian monastery in Kostanjevica na Krki. It is one of the largest Slovenian galleries in terms of exhibition space and the fund it keeps. Art collections representing, at their core, the work of Slovenian expressionists and occasional exhibitions, breathe extra life into this remarkable cultural monument and its surroundings. Since 1961, the International Symposium of Sculptors Forma Viva has been held in Kostanjevica na Krki, which is considered the oldest working symposium in the world. More than 100 sculptures have been created in the years of the symposium, and these are presented in the immediate vicinity of Božidar Jakac Art Museum and Kostanjevica na Krki.
