Republic of Croatia Square, Zagreb
The square we see today took shape over a period spanning from 1856, marked by the construction of a former hospital on its northern side, to 1964, when the Ferimport building was erected on its western flank. However, the majority of the buildings that grace the square were constructed during the late 19th century, adhering to the historicist style of architecture.
Republic of Croatia Square is part of a trio of squares that together compose the western section of what is known as Lenuci's Horseshoe, a U-shaped arrangement of squares and parks. On the eastern side of this formation lie King Tomislav, Strossmayer, and Zrinski squares, while the western side is formed by Marulić, Mažuranić, and Republic of Croatia squares, with the Botanical Garden serving as the connecting element between them. Within this square, one can find several cultural and educational institutions, as well as notable sculptures that add to its character.
