Yesterdays date - 9th of September - is the day we celebrate the Croatian Independence Day. As it is a public holiday, so lots of people did not work and had a chance to use it for a long weekend. So, much less people spend it in Zagreb and it was delight to take a walk through the city center (and the weather was also very nice!). I took this photo on the Zagreb main square where I saw two of this guards around the ban Jelačić sculpture. They were wearing very interesting historic clothes - pay a special attention on the red scarf around the neck - it is a precursor of the modern tie. And if you didn't know - Croats invented the tie as it is known to us today! More about it you can read here.
