Napoleon's Milestone

more than a year ago
On the South side of the river Sava, by the footbridge that spans it, can be found what some call Napoleon’s Milestone. It’s located close to the entrance to the Zagreb Hippodrome, and the Kajzerica neighbourhood, and dates back to the 19th century when the French Emperor Napoleon established what was then known as the Illyrian Provinces — a short-lived autonomous province of the French Empire with the Sava as its border. The name Illyrian was used to give credence to the Neoclassicist re-labeling of the Dalmatian coast, which was known in antiquity as Illyria.
