Dramatic moments!

There are some sculptures in Zagreb which have really long and rich history that makes them a certain city symbol. This is one of such sculptures - Anton Dominik Fernkorn's Saint George killing the dragon made in 1853. At first it was placed in the beautiful park Maksimir in 1867. and than moved to the Strossmayer square 1884. Now it is situated at the Marshal Tito square near the Croatian national theater. I'm really not sure that this last location is appropriate enough as it is somehow hidden behind the trees and bushes. I must drive your attention to the one more detail - I've made a post last summer about another Saint George killing the dragon sculpture at the Upper town which has a completely different vibe! Check it out!
