(650+ reviews on the web)
Flea Market Monument
At Ban Josip Jelačić Square, the most common meeting place in the capital city, watch people coming and going among the newspaper and flower vendors. The square has been the center of the downtown pedestrian zone since the 17th century. Admire the classicist, secessionist, and modernist buildings. See the large equestrian statue of Count Josip Jelacic, who led Croatians into a battle for independence in the 19th century. The statue was removed from the square during the communist period, then returned to its original place in the 1990s. The square is inaccessible by car, but it is the main hub for trams.
