Britanski trg

Britanski trg (British Square) is a public square in the city of Zagreb, Croatia.[1] It is one of the few remaining squares to include an open-air farmers' marketplace with fresh fruit, vegetables and other foods brought directly from farms,[2] and is a revered urban area among the population of Zagreb.[3] Britanski trg is located along Ilica Street, a few blocks west from the main city square, Ban Jelačić Square. It is also a transport hub—it is an endpoint for several bus lines, while the city tram lines 6 and 11 stop on its south side.[4] The square itself is convenient for access to several elite upscale neighborhoods of Zagreb, such as Pantovčak and Zelengaj.[5] The open air market is held daily from early morning until about noon, and an antiques fair is held at the square each Sunday.[6][7]
