Zagreb’s Squares to be Advert Free as Mayor Looks To Return City To How it Once Was

The main squares in downtown Zagreb are set to become advertising free zones next year, after the Mayor of the Croatian capital Milan Bandic announced that he wants to return the city to how it was in the old days.

“For years, in the centre of town advertising and billboards of all types and sizes on roofs, balconies, facades, and scaffolding during renovation of facades, have led to the destruction of the look of the old town, especially Ban Josip Jelacic Square and Petar Preradović Square (Flower square)”, Mayor Bandic said whilst explaining the new bylaw. Bandic, who said that procedures were in place to see all advertising removed by 1 March 2014, said that advertising and billboards had become an eyesore and he wants to return Zagreb’s identity.
