There are many city clocks around the city, but only one is THE clock

Did you know that, when you’re meeting with someone from Zagreb, you can just say „meet me under the clock“ and that person will automatically know where is your meeting point?

There’s a really special, even magical, clock in Zagreb. It is located on the main square in Zagreb, and whoever is meeting someone on that square, they are meeting under the clock. Why? Nobody knows, but that clock, and the phrase „meet me under the clock“, became legendary, and everyone knows THE clock.

It’s like a magnet for people looking at their phones. Whoever comes first, just keeps looking at the smartphone until the other person comes, it’s like the world doesn’t exist. Also, I bet that many friendships were ruined under that same clock, if you know what I mean…

So, meet me under the clock?
