  • To the East of the ban jelacic square in Zagreb. I noticed that when noticing when I went to the first square twice went to the square. It was unnoticeable as it overlooked the fountain. I thought no attractions to the fountain itself.

  • Možete sjesti i je tamo prije par godina jedan crni saksofonist,pa je ispunjavao glazbene želje,ljudi su ga voljeli 
  • This fountain in Center isn't exactly a tourist attraction. Although it is nice especially in summer does not have a special relevance.

  • The Manduševac Fountain was built above a natural spring that provided Zagreb with drinking water right up until the end of the 19th century. Court records about the persecution of witches mention the spring as their main meeting point. There is also a legend connecting the spring with the name of the city. Namely, one sunny day an old Croatian war leader was returning from battle tired and thirsty, and asked a beautiful girl Manda to scoop up some water from the spring for him. The Croatian word for “to scoop up water” is “zagrabiti”. So the spring got the name Manduševac, after the girl, and the town got the name Zagreb after the scoop of water.
