King Tomislav statue

This courageous warrior defended the continental part of Croatia from Hungarian attacks and for the first time united all Croatian lands into one country. King Tomislav successfully sought papal recognition of his realm, and was crowned as king in 925. The King died mysteriously three years later and the circumstances of his death have never been clarified. The statue of Tomislav on horseback was completed by sculptor Robert Frangeš Mihanović in 1938, although protracted political difficulties and the outbreak of World War II prevented the statue from being installed in its current location until 1947. King Tomislav Square was named after a monument dedicated to Croatia’s first king, which dominates the square. The pavilion was constructed using the latest in metal frame techniques. The ceremonial opening took place in 1898 accompanied by a grand exhibition of contemporary artists. The pavilion was Zagreb’s first dedicated space for art shows, and has been an important venue for high-profile exhibitions ever since.
