King Tomislav Square is a monument dedicated to Tomislav, Croatia’s first king, whose name dominates the square. The square is situated opposite the Zagreb Railway station. Travelers exiting the railway station have been confronted with one of the most beautiful views in Zagreb, which takes in the statue of King Tomislav, the Art Pavillion, the cathedral’s spires and the green slopes of Mount Medvednica in the distance. To be frank, I find the Art Pavillion eye-catching especially with the backdrop of the mountains. On a cool Spring day, walking this park is a brisk.
