Ban Jelacic Square (Trg Bana Jelacica) Tours - page 2

Ban Jelacic Square (Trg Bana Jelacica)
The living heart around which Zagreb beats, Ban Jelacic Square (Trg Bana Jelacica) was built in the mid-19th century when Croatia was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and it marks the boundary between Gornji Grad and Kapitol (both in the Upper Town) and Donji Grad (Lower Town). The huge, paved piazza is named after a military leader of the 19th century, whose equestrian statue by Austrian sculptor Anton Dominick Ritter von Fernkorn was erected in 1866; it has great sentimental value to the Croatian people as it was removed from the square in 1947 by the Communists, and only replaced in 1990 during the breakup of Yugoslavia. 

Surrounded by elegant and arcaded Baroque buildings – many swathed in advertising hoardings – the vast square is crossed by several of the city’s great boulevards, including Illica and Radićeva. It is lined with bars and cafés that move outdoors in the summer, when locals and visitors jostle for space with buskers, beggars and the trams that constantly rattle around its perimeter. A Christmas market takes place during Advent, and Jelacic Square is where the people of Zagreb see in the New Year with fireworks and live music. 

Practical Info

Trg bana Josipa Jelačića. Open all hours, Jelačić Square is pedestrianized and is on several tram lines.
Address: Trg bana Josipa Jelačića, Zagreb 1000, Croatia
