Centre of the solar system
It might come as a surprise if you didn't know, but that big copper-coloured ball on Bogovićeva, just outside the Vinyl bar, full of scratches, tags and stickers, is actually a piece of art representing our most important star. Josip Kozarić's 'Grounded Sun' was first introduced back in 1971 on Maršal Tito square (today's Republic of Croatia Square). It stood alone for many years, until 2004 when Zagreb acquired an entire solar system to join it. Artist Davor Preis used the scale of Kozarić's sun to match the actual astronomical scale of the other planets, which are placed at appropriate distances from the sun, which was then moved to be placed centrally in the city. You can see Mercury in nearby Margaretska 3, Venus at Josip Jelačić square 3, Earth at Varšavska 9 and Mars at Tkalčićeva 21. The furthest planet, Neptune, is located in Kozari 17 and Pluto used to hang around Bologne avenue, but somebody stripped him of his stautus as in recent years he's been dubbed a planetoid and not a planet.
