Main square. Connected to everything, from there you can go anywhere you want and there is always something going on! Maybe you'll miss the monument with all that stuff and people around it :D

It is a large monument. Definitely worth a visit and a picture. However, it is situated in Jalacic Square - which is a must see. The focal point of Zagreb and a hub of activity. Not to be missed!

The monument is at the centre of the main square of jelacic in Zagreb. It sits proud on a high base. For the locals the statue is of a popular historic leader. You can not miss this statue from a sistance . There are always crowds in the square around it.

There is a special ceremony on Saturday morning - changing guards directly at the monument. Very folkloric and full of tradition

I'm sure the statue has much more meaning to the locals and is close to their heart . As a visitor the statue is nice but nothing special in itself. Its the area where the statue is located that is worth the visit for sure . An area with many people , restaurants , bars and activity .

This monument is really big statue. If you go in the center than you can't miss it. Nice to see it, but this will take you 5 min.

Ban J.Jelačić, person whose allways on time :) Monument is well known meeting spot and place to take photo. Back in a days,when city department set him back on his place,they discuss about different variations of the monument and one of ideas was rotational monument. I think that is something what I miss the most, Disko Ban Jelachich. Ouu yeahh!... More

You certainly can't miss this sculpture while in Zagreb's main square & although impressive it is very typical of past notable figures of European history Interesting in this case that he lost the battle with the Hungarians
