The Well of life is a masterpiece, located in front of the impressive building of the Croatian National Theatre, whose author is the famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic. The work was created at the beginning of the 20th century, and in 1912 it was placed at today’s location.
At a time when we all have smartphones, the whole world in the palm of our hand, we rarely use mechanisms that our grandparents could not live without in the past. One such piece of history, still in function of the meteorological pillar and history, is located on the northern side of the Zrinjevac park.
Oktogon is a passageway through a building located in the centre of Zagreb. There are two entrances: one is at the street of Ilica and the other one is at Cvjetni square (Petar Preradović square). All the way through the passageway is a line of shops.
A one “wicked” rise from the British Square stands between you and Rokov perivoj, a perfect combination of greenery and serenity that stands next to a concrete jungle situated a few hundred meters south.
You can also go up there during the daytime, but really, you HAVE to experience this beautiful panorama of Zagreb during night time. It’s worth it.
