Pimped Up Zagreb Pumps Become Original Souvenirs

For the last couple of years the PimpMyPump crew have been creatively ‘pimping’ up old water pumps around the Croatian capital Zagreb…

The five-member team started the project to give new life to the old water pumps, and to give the city some ‘soul’. They have become recognisable around the city and now you can get your own one to take home as the crew have released miniture souvenir versions.

The original souvenirs can be picked up at Zagreb’s new Art Park located between Tomić street and Strossmayer promenade in the heart, as well as at the first Zagreb street art studio Lapo Lapo on Illica 50.


The mini pimped up pumps, which are known locally as Železni Martin or Francek, cost 40 kuna (5 euros).
