BAN JELAČIĆ SQUARE – ZAGREB MAIN SQUARE
This square is the main square in Zagreb and the central meeting point. It was named after Ban Josip Jelačić, a national hero, general and a governor, that abolished feudalism and had the first elections for the Croatian parliament. Earlier the square was known as the Republic square or Harmica (Hungarian hermincz is 30 for the tax that had to be payed in the city). The square was actually a meadow outside the Old Zagreb but with the city spreading it got the important function. In the center of the square there is a statue of Ban Jelačić on his horse. It was originally turned up north because of his important s in the battles with Hungary. Now, it’s turned south so the square looks nicer.
OUR TIP: You can see the square from the Zagreb Eye, the tallest view point on the square.
