A bustling plaza in the center of Zagreb’s Lower Town, the pedestrian-only King Tomislav Square (Trg kralja Tomislava) is a vibrant city meet-up spot, full of formal gardens and public event space. Named after Croatia’s first monarch, it forms part of the city's spectacular urban parkland, and is defined by botanical gardens and beautiful surrounding buildings. The square's southern flank is overlooked by the central train station, an elegant, Neo-classical building from the 19th century, connecting Zagreb to Vienna and Budapest via railway. The 19th-century Art Pavillion, a popular venue for high-profile exhibitions, sits on the square's north end. Inside the square, you'll find a vast equestrian statue of 10th-century King Tomislav, installed in 1947.
An energetic scene for markets, festivals, and concerts year-round, there's no wrong time to visit the square. Stop by on a city highlights tour to snap a pic, or drive right up to the front of the square on a vintage car tour through the city. The square is also a stop on running tours through the Upper and Lower Towns.
The square is located at the center of Zagreb's Lower Town, and is easily accessible by public transportation. The city’s central train station is on the square, and it is a five-minute walk from the bus stop. Take bus lines 2, 4, 6, 9, 13, 31, 33, or 34 to bus stop Glavni Kolodvor.
