Just behind the statue is the famous Flower Square. Lovely cafés and restaurants are all around this statue. Useful to know that this is also the point for taxis.

Walked by this statue, took a picture and though, hmm, could this be the same Tesla? Sure enough, turns out the Tesla car was named after this great inventor.

For me he is the most popular scientist of all the time. As time passes the fascination with this great man grows and I am happy that such a great man has his statue in Zagreb.

Luka Modric not withstanding, Nikola Tesla is most likely the most famous Croatian you’ll know. A nice statue dedicated to an amazing inventor.

Located on the street with the same name, it's a must see statue. Big and impressive, it marks some years in history.
