Like the square itself, the Ban Josip Jelacic Monument is a good place to meet. It's central, conveniently located, obviously easy to see. Not necessarily aesthetically spectacular, but the statue has some interesting history behind it.

Truly the centre of all activities concerning tourism in Zagreb. So many things are a shortish walk away. The Free Orange Tour of the main sites of the city start here ... they are so worthwhile. Likewise the ' Homelands War' tour over 3 hours was extremely fascinating. Radiceva branches off the square & leads you to cafes etc.

The monument was done by Austrian sculptor Anton Dominik Fernkorn. It was placed at the square in 1866 and removed during communisst authorities in 1947. Returned in 1990 - unveiled on October 16th - Ban Jelačić's birthday. Josip Jelačić is considered Croatian national hero. This is point from where you would usually start sightseeing of Zagreb. This monument is one of the main symbols of Zagreb. It is "must see" in Zagreb.
