Very romantic panorama. The work of sculptor Ivan Kožarić was placed on a promenade in 1978. Be sure to sit next to it and take a photo of that scene.

You cannot miss this guy if you're in the up town area. A picture with him is a must when visiting Zagreb:-) Another reason to go and see him are the nice views of the town from the area around the statute.
