The present day Strossmayer promenade is the eastern part of the former Southern promenade. The Strossmayer promenade, also known as the South promenade, is the first public promenade in Zagreb. The impetus for its construction was given by Governor Ignjat Gyulay and his wife Julia. The promenade was designed in 1812 and constructed only a year later. The funicular was put into operation in 1890 in order to connect the Lower town and Zagreb. The street gained its present look in 1912. The promenade is dominated by the Lotrščak tower. The cannon is fired from the tower on Grič to mark midday.
