King Tomislav Square


Every traveler who arrives in Zagreb by train receives a royal welcome when stepping out of the Central train station. There, at the far side of the busy square, beyond the taxi drivers, street peddlers and florists proudly stands the bearer of it’s name- king Tomislav, the first Croatian king. The bronze statue depicting the king riding a steed while holding his royal scepter is the most dominant element of the square that reaches from Central train station to Umjetnicki paviljon (Art pavilion) on the north side.
The square is part of a bigger architectural concept from the late 19th century that engulfs six more parks and squares in downtown Zagreb, forming a horseshoe-like pattern visible from the air.
