Square has interesting potential. Just potential. They use the inclined place with some trees and a fountain for a parking. Facades around are not very attractive. Just the entrance to the Klovićevi dvori is more interesting. Main point of interest is a fountain with bronze figure. No view at all.

Definitely the magic of Zagreb can be felt everywhere. The place is interesting and has its own atmosphere.

For the life of me, I can't figure out why this place is called a square. To me, it just looks like a slightly crooked street - perhaps a shortcut between the Stone Gate and St. Catherine's Church. Either that, or a makeshift parking lot. No matter. It's certainly worth taking a stroll around this area if only to admire... More

This square is rather small and it is known for the fountain with the statue of a Fisherman and a snake (1908), which is a work of Simenon Roksandic. The first people to settle down in the Upper Town were the Jesuits in 1606. Here they built the first grammar school in St. Catherine's Square, St. Catherine's Church, and their... More

The square is cute, small and historical. It might not not have a lot to offer, but if you go there you are very close to nice churches, good viewpoints of Zagreb and historical buildings. Just walk around there and enjoy the cultural and historical atmosphere:-)

One of the few parking lots in the old town. It's not really a destination or even a detour. We passed as the old town is relatively small and we wanted to hit every street. It's in the south east part of the upper old town a short block north of St Catherine's (worth a peak and a detour).

This square is known for the fountain with the statue of a fisherman and a snake (the correct name is “The Battle” and it is a work of Simeon Roksandić from 1908) and the art gallery Klovićevi dvori which is situated in the former Jesuit monastery built in the 17th century. It is a small but very nice square which... More

I the Jezuitski trg is the Galerija Klovicevi dvori. It contains revolving shows of both international and contemporary Croatian artist. When I visited there was a very good show on street art, but the other show by Edith Shubert was most interesting. A Croatian artist that was a very important figure in late 20th century art in Croatia. The gallery... More
