The area around the monument is very nicely maintained. Lots of families out on Sunday. Great place to watch the world go by. Restaurants, stores, etc.

I ask you, where else would you expect to find a statue of Ban Josip Jelacic but in Jelacic Square? Not to disappoint, here he sits atop his gallant steed. Kinda nice to see him back here after being removed by Tito. Go Ban!! Recommended

My Game Guru recommends you go to the Ban Jelacic Square and enjoy the shopping, cafes, restaurants and the city markets. Don't forget get to check out the amazing flower market. This place is full of life and atmosphere. A must go to place.

Most people walk on by, but it's worth noting the square is named for this famous individual. You can read more on Google!

Historic statue in a lively square with small farmer's market at that time. Typical, nothing special.

The main square of Zagreb. The monument is interesting, but the main attraction is to sit down and enjoy a coffee while admiring the activity in the square.

This is where the Advent markets and celebrations are (they're all around, but the main one is here), this is where the Christmas tree is and where all the fun fake snow is during Advent

The Ban Josip Jelacic Monument itself is alright... but honestly, to me, it's just another dead hero on a horse. You can see one of these monuments in just about every capitol city in every country you visit. I enjoyed this square, which always seemed...More
