Zagreb

Travel through the Solar System

share
Now, would it be unfair of us to tell you that there’s literally too much to see in a single day? In fact a full day could be taken up with Zagreb’s very own Solar System, the Nine Views art installation. You might notice a rather large metal ball on Bogovićeva, and this is a representation of the Sun, sculpted in 1971 by Ivan Kožarić. In 2004 Davor Preis created a scale model of the solar system around this mighty Sun, including planets at the following urban locations:
  • Mercury - Margaretska 3;
  • Venus - Trg bana Josipa Jelačića 3;
  • Earth - Varšavska 9;
  • Mars - Tkalčićeva 21;
  • Jupiter - Voćarska 71;
  • Saturn - Račićeva 1;
  • Uranus - Siget 9;
  • Neptune - Kozari put;
  • Pluto - Aleja Bologne (underpass)
Preis never revealed the locations of the planets, so finding them turned into a game lasting until the last planet was “discovered” in 2006. It’s a great way to get a feel for the dimensions of the solar system and to discover random corners of the city.
