Manduševac is probably the most famous fountain in Zagreb, and it is located at Ban Jelačić Square. The fountain is a tourist attraction and thus a recognizable symbol of the city of Zagreb. The fountain has great historical significance – according to a legend, Zagreb was named after it. One legend says that the name of the city originated like this: an old city ruler, tired and thirsty, ordered the young girl Manda to bring water from the source. The ruler said “Mando, dear, zagrabi!” (zagrabi – scoop it). And hence the name of Zagreb and the name of the well Manduševac.
