Ban Josip Jelacic Square is the main square in Zagreb.
It is dominated by a statue of Ban Josip Jelacic by sculptor Dominic Fernkorn, facing south. When the statue was first erected in 1866 on the market, looked north towards Hungary. In 1947 the statue was removed, and in 1990 was ceremoniously returned to the market.
On the eastern side of the square there is a fountain Mandusevac. According to legend, Zagreb is named after the beautiful girl Mandusa which grabbed (in Croatian: zagrabiti) water out of the well, watered the army passing by.
