Statue of the famous inventor Nikola Tesla in the Masarykova street

The monument to the greatest Croatian inventor, Nikola Tesla, is located at the crossroads of Preradoviceva and Masarykova / Teslina Street, and it’s a work of Ivan Mestrovic. The memorial is 2.5 meters high, it is cast in copper, and it was intended for the Rudjer Boskovic Institute. But Meštrovic opposed the idea of moving the monument anywhere or making replicas, but in spite of that, the City of Zagreb moved the monument to today’s location on the 150th anniversary of the death of Nikola Tesla.
