Owner description: This city center is dominated by a statue of the 19th-century governor of Croatia, which was removed by Tito in 1947 but restored in 1990 as an act of defiance.

Ban Josip Jelačić Square serves as a modern main square of Zagreb, and can be used as a perfect meeting point. It lies just under Dolac Market in the downtown centre, and trams have a stop here.
The square, dominated by the statue of Josip Jelačić, combines a modern look with historical buildings in a pretty and harmonious way. It also offers numerous shops and coffeehouses from which you can watch the busy metropolitan life. Whether you want to visit it on purpose or not, you will probably stumble across it anyway - which definitely won't be a bad experience!

When I was reviewing the Ban Josip Jelacic Monument, I wrote about the trg. I think it's impossible to talk about one without relating to the other. Trg bana is the place where people meet to head to other places or just to hang out, peolpe watching...

Clearly where everything happens for those who live there. We saw children fold dancing, stages with musicians, street vendors and artists and of course, many cafes.

Typical European center, very busy with Trams, cars, people, restaurants etc. Entertainment and great people watching.
Hop on Hop off bus is just up the hill at the church 5 min walk and a big market just behind the square.
