One of the highlights of Zagreb is the Ban Jelacic statue in Ban Jelacic Square located in Zagreb’s old-city.

This large statue is of a famous army general which was created by Austrian sculptor Anton Dominik Fernkorn. This square has existed since the 17th century.

Visitors can buy unique gifts and souvenirs from various shops and boutiques ranging from superior Croatian wines, ceramics, straw baskets, and the traditional tie or cravat that were worn by the Croats during the Thirty Years’ War in the 17th century.

Zagreb is a blend of both ancient and modernity. It is beautiful and a must visit place.
