Ban Jelacic Square is located just below the hillside settlements of Gradec and Kaptol. It is the town's commercial heart ever since 1641. Most of the buildings around the square date from the 19th century, and display a variety of architectural styles.
Ban Jelacic Square is situated at the centre of Zagreb's social life and the famous meeting points are on the west side of the square, where the statue of Ban Jelacic is. The statue of Ban Josip Jelacic is the work of the Austrian sculptor Anton Fernkorn. It faces south. When the statue was first put on the square in 1866, it was facing north into the direction of Hungary. In 1947 the statue was removed and in 1990 it was solemnly returned to the square. From 1947 to 1990 the square was named Republic Square. On the east side of the Ban Jelacic Square is located the Mandusevac Fountain. It was built above a natural spring that provided city with drinking water right up until the end of the 19th century. There is also an interesting legend connecting the spring with the name of the town. The square wasn't always located in the centre of the Zagreb. Sometimes it was an empty area under the walls of Gradec and Kaptol, where the newcomers lived and who were denied to access the city. With the expansion of the city to Ilica and Staro Vlaska, Ban Jelacic Square became the most central part of the city. There are many very nice cafes and bars on the square, such as the City Cafe, the Little Cafe, the popular Tantra lounge bar, Piccolo Mondo, the hotel Dubrovnik from the year 1929 and the tourist office where visitiors can get many useful information.
Ban Jelacic Square is a pedestrian zone and therefore vehicles are not allowed inside this area. Only the tram part is accessible. The square represents the center of the city Zagreb and a popular place for different social events.
