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
