Since it is the city centre it would be almost impossible not to see this square if you visit Zagreb. But we must have passed through it several times to take a tram or walking somewhere before we decided to have a proper look at the square itself.
According to our Croatian friend a popular meeting point on the square is the statue of ban Josip Jelacic on his horse, which did seem to have a few people waiting around when we were there! - it´s also how the square got its name. The statue was removed under Communism because of Jelacic´s support for Austria but returned to the square again after the elections in the 90´s. Today Jelacic is generally recognised for his efforts to fight for Croatia.
We found a nice relaxing spot to sit by the Mandusevac fountain and just watched the world go by. [more]
