Discover a lesser-known gem: the Grounded Solar System in Zagreb

Discover a lesser-known gem: the Grounded Solar System in Zagreb, which began with the installation of the Sun in the Bogovićeva Street.

Artist Ivan Kožarić created and placed this Sun in 1994, marking the inception of an extraordinary artistic project. Ten years later the artist Davor Preis decided to expand the installation by creating the entire Solar System. Thus, the Grounded Solar System or Nine Views was born, a magical treasure that brings the city’s space to life.
