Zagreb - Croatia

Mirna really made me happy by sending this card which was one of my favorites. Zagreb is one of my favorite cities and i would love to go there again.

This card shows the cathedral and the Ban Jelacic Square, "the main and biggest square in Zagreb and the place where everyone meets as it serves as a focal point for all social activities. It is always crowded, even in the middle of the night Ban Jelačić square is busy and full of young people. The main point of the square is the statue of Josip Jelačić who was an important figure in the 19th century in Croatian history, as an army general who defeated the Hungarians in 1848. The statue shows him riding a horse and holding a sword." - in:
