Ban Jelačić square:

[IMG]http://i33.************/2cq16p0.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i35.************/1232yag.jpg[/IMG]

Ban Jelačić:
The statue represents ban Jelačić on his horse with his sword ready for the battle, and it was made in honor of his battle against Hungarians in the revolution in 1848. It was first put in it's place in 1866 and it used to face the north (Hungary) as a warning to Hungarians, who he faught against. It was moved from it's spot during communist times (1947-1990) and retuned back to the square in 1990, this time facing the south.

Green wave:

Green wave is not one street, but more streets in a row, and it's called like that because traffic lights are set in the way that cars drive from the beginning til the end with the green light on.

Interesting. I've always found traffic problems much better solved in Zagreb than in Ljubljana. As a smaller city, Ljubljana seems much more packed with cars everywhere and I find that surprising. Of course your public transport is also hundred times better.

Traffic is still far from perfect, lots to do still, although I'd say that's it not so bad.

This is the building Zagrepčanka (95m), built in 1976:

Zrinjevac:

Zrinjevac is a more commonly used name for Square of Nikola Šubić Zrinski, only about 100 m away from the main square (Ban Jelačić square). It's practically a green paradise in the middle of the city, with lots of trees, a music pavilion and busts of famous historic Croats, and it's surrounded by important institutions:

on the north side: High Court
the south: Croatian Academy for Art and Science
east: Ministry for Foreign Affairs
west: Archeaological museum

Lenuci caffe:

Lenuci is an architect who very much influenced the todays look of the city centre, famous for his Green horseshoe (or Lenuci's horseshoe) - a stretch od parks that together form a giant horseshoe. Zrinjevac is one of those parks.
