Zagreb Solar System

Did you know that Zagreb has it own Solar system? Yes, you read it correctly! :D
In the center of Zagreb there is a sculpture of a very famous contemporary Croatian artist Ivan Kožarić called Grounded Sun that was made in 1971. In that time it was quite controversial but today it became the one of the true and the dearest symbols of Zagreb.
Then another artist Davor Preis had a wonderful idea in 2004. He decided to place the planets of solar system all over the Zagreb. He took the measures of Grounded Sun and put the little planets in a precise distance from that sculpture of sun and in a right size too. I think it is a pretty cool idea!
So here you can see how Venus looks like. More info here and here.
