It’s not political like the street art in South America, but it’s still wonderfully colorful. Have a look.
Walk along Ulica kneza Branimira (or ride along half a dozen trams) for plenty of graffiti / street art. This single wall has dozens of pieces along hundreds of meters:
A nice orderly look at pieces…
Maybe a little less orderly here… The tags ruin it a little, but there’s still some nice pieces here.
Love the pixelated picture. And the monkeys, though I have no idea if there’s a political message here.
Even though you’re several blocks from the train station and Zagreb’s prettier older town, it does feel a little industrial.
Iconic Renaissance art, turned street art, complete with the painters. I would’ve loved to see this one complete, but the unfinished look is a lot of fun as well.
On the outside of a parking lot is a reminder of where you are — you know, just in case you forgot.
Yeah, I’ve got nothing on this one. It’s quite colorful, even if the really skinny ‘pink panther’ has a skull for a face…
If you’re visiting Zagreb, these are all along Ulica kneza Branimira, between Zagreb glavni kolodvor (the train station) and Avenija Marina Držića. Use Ulica kneza Branimira 37 if you need a specific street address, or jump off at the Branimirova tram station (trams 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 13, 14, 15, 31, 33, and 34 all stop here
Next up: the ‘art park’:
Dozens of birds and a weird looking crystal ball anyone?
Head through the tunnel there for even more good times. Not sure the snake charmer and the goose that laid the golden eggs are on the same piece…
Cats and dogs and… oddball monsters…?
The Art Park is located at Strossmayerovo šetalište 99, though that won’t really help you find this park. As you’re walking along Ilica (the main drag through old town Zagreb), head towards the world’s shortest funicular (Tunel Grič – Tomićeva on Google Maps). As you’re looking straight at it, head uphill on the left side and look for an opening to the left. You should see the Chillout Hostel and park through it.
