Count from the back!

I told you some details about ban Josip Jelačić some time ago. This sculpture is placed on the Zagreb main square that carries his name. It was made by famous sculptor Dominik Fernkorn and was placed at this square in 1866. but at that time it was facing the north towards Hungary and today it is turned to look at the south. In 1947. the sculpture was removed because it was not appropriate according the Yugoslavian regime because it glorified Croatian history. During the Croatian separation from Yugoslavia in 1990. the sculpture was returned to the square.  I took this shot while passing through the Harmica passage.
