  • The Manduševac Fountain was built above a natural spring that provided Zagreb with drinking water right up until the end of the 19th century. There is also a legend connecting the spring with the name of the city. Namely, one sunny day an old Croatian war leader was returning from battle tired and thirsty, and asked a beautiful girl Manda to scoop up some water from the spring for him. The Croatian word for “to scoop up water” is “zagrabiti”. So the spring got the name Manduševac, after the girl, and the town got the name Zagreb after the scoop of water. A good meeting place for people today in the centre of the town, also gets fully decorated during Xmas n other festivals. Definitely a small place with big position in history of city & country.
