  • This is the best interactive monument that I've ever seen. I understood how small is our planet and how far it is. If you want to see all planets just to be ready spend few hours;)
  • Although there is no official map or plague with a list of all planets around Zagreb, you can search for "Nine views - Grounded Solar System Zagreb" on Google Maps and find a list with all planets and instructions how to find them. The sculpture Grounded Sun was made by an artist Ivan Kožarić in 1971. At first, it was located in front of National Theater but it was transported on this location later in 1991. In 2004. an artist Davor Preis created other planets and hid them around the city in the accurate distance and size based on Kožarić's Sun. Back then, Pluto was still one of the planets. Preis did this installation with very little or no publicity, so his installation isn't well known among citizens of Zagreb. On a few occasions individuals or small groups of people, particularly physics students, "discovered" that there was a model of the Solar System in Zagreb. One of the earliest efforts to find all of the planets was started in November 2004 on the web forum of the student section of Croatian Physics Society. Explore the city and find all of the hidden planets from Grounded Solar System installation scattered in Zagreb.
