Some people don’t like Zagreb. They find it too busy, too big. I love it precisely for its buzz, and also because of 1000 little details one can discover just by walking around. One of the things that I like about Zagreb are the statues of its inhabitants scattered around the city, capturing them in a moment of everyday life. Tin Ujevic, one of Croatia’s best-loved poets, is captured walking near his favourite cafe’, while Marija Juric Zagorka, one of the first female journalist and the author of many historical novels, is taking a stroll around Gornji Grad (the Upper Town). You will also see Antun Gustav Matos, another poet, sitting on a bench in Gornji Grad (the Upper Town), and August Senoa, the novelist, resting against a post near the main square.
