Why locals love it

The greatest Croatian sculptor and important European XXth century artist Ivan Mestrovic was only 22 when he finished his famous Well of life. The dramatic piece was acquired by the city of Zagreb more than a century ago, adorning the space in front of the National Theater building.

Why you should visit it

The streets of Zagreb display hundreds of sculptures by renown artists, but this one really can't go unnoticed. Highly expressive figures will certainly grab your attention for a minute or two, while you will be trying to understand the otherworldly abilities of the sculptor.

Special tip

This is not the only Mestrovic's sculpture in Zagreb. For example, in the nearby Teslina Street you can check out the Nikola Tesla sculpture.
