Petar Preradović Square (Flower Square)
Petar Preradović Square was named after Petar Preradović (1818 – 1872), an army general who also wrote patriotic verse and love poetry. His statue stands in the middle of the square. The square is colloquially known as “Flower Square” (Cvjetni trg), after the flower stalls which have been a feature of the place ever since the 14th century when fairs were held here. On the northern side of the square is the Orthodox Church of the Holy Transfiguration, built at the end of the 19th century on the former site of the Roman Catholic Church of St Margaret. Both the square and the surrounding streets are lined with pavement cafes, and it is here that you can get a true sense of Zagreb’s “outdoor lounge” culture. Here you can have serious business meetings or a have coffee with friends.
