Located out the front the national theatre, within the Republic of Croatia Square, (sunken below ground level) is this very beautiful ornate well, the sculpture depicts people in different stages of life wrapped around the well. Zagreb really does statues, monument and sculptures well.

This was on my list of things to see and I am glad I did, although it is a little bizarre to say the least. Good sculpturing and something to see!!!
