Fodor's Review

Buildings lining the square date from 1827 onward and include several fine examples of Viennese Secessionist architecture. The centerpiece is an equestrian statue of Ban Jelačić, the first Croatian viceroy, erected in 1866. Originally facing north towards Hungary, against which Jelacic waged war as a commander in the Austrian Imperial Army, the statue was dismantled after World War II by the Communist government, only to be re-installed in 1990, this time facing south. The square features the Manduševac fountain located to the east.
