Ban Jelačić sculpture
Ban Jelačić Square is the central square of the city of Zagreb, Croatia, named after ban Josip Jelačić. A large statue of ban Josip Jelačić on a horse, created by Austrian sculptor Anton Dominik Fernkorn was installed on October 19th, 1866, but was removed in 1947. At the initiative of a number of citizens and their numerous petitions, the statue was returned to the square on October 16th, 1990. Josip Jelačić is remembered for his abolition of serfdom in Croatia and for declaring the first elections for the Croatian parliament. He died in Zagreb and the city dedicated the main square to this national hero.
