  • The fountain in the main square of Zagreb is quite modern and recessed in the ground so as not to be very visible, it actually seems to be fed by a natural spring that existed in the past. Legend has it that a beautiful girl, Manda, had given a drink to a Knight or something like that, that she turned saying "out some water vodu, Mando!" (Take the water, send!) from there the name of the city, Zagreb. The fountain is not so interesting from an architectural point of view, but it was built in 1986, on the occasion of the Universiade in the following year, finding that ancient source.

  • 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.
