Ban Jelačić Square (Zagreb)
Vibrant and active, with people of all ages and ethnicities. Open air market, shops, restaurants...It is unbelievably clean and well organized with small tents around it where you can purchase good mulled wine and tasty sausages at very cheap price.
The square itself is pleasant, though if you look like a tourist or you stand around too much you're likely to have a man or woman come up and talk about their animal shelter and as for 20-40 kuna for a picture of an animal or a magnet. Whether or not they're actually working for a charity, I don't know, but constantly being asked for money is a bit irritating.
Beautiful around Christmas
Busy, busy square - beautiful in the day and especially at night - with all the xmas lights. Love the 2015 lights, in readiness for the new year. there were performances and a xmas market offering food and crafts at good prices. Definitely recommend Zagreb and all it has to offer.
