Pavao Bedekovic had had enough. Week after week, people would flock to the flea market that takes place right near his farm – and they’d leave their cars on his property without permission. Eventually, then, he took matters into his own hands.
On the northwest side of Croatia sits Zagreb – the nation’s capital and most populous city. There are plenty of stories behind Zagreb’s name, by the way: one legend has it that a hand-dug well brought water in the midst of a medieval drought. And the verb za-grab- means “to dig.”
The city itself also has a rich history and a celebrated culture, and this draws in tourists and locals alike. For instance, one of Zagreb’s many attractions is Jakuševac – a Sunday-only flea market that takes place at the edge of the city.
