Only after I visited, did I read about this statue. Nice tribute. The market is a must see, and you could go back again and again. Great sites, reasonable prices, and great smells. more »
Lovely statue of a Croatian Peasant Woman at the top of the steps at Dolać Markets
Kumica Barica (kumica is loosely translated into "outdoor sales market") is a work of the sculptor Stjepan Gracaan. The name "Barica" was chosen by the citizens of Zagreb. It was recently reported that kumica Barica was inspired by a real-life woman, kumica Ursica, who has been a lady selling Dolac for many, many years, selling fruits and vegetables. The sculpture was placed at the top of the stairs from Ban Jelasei Square to Dolac in 2006. Although not hidden from view, crowds at the market often cause passers-by to overlook it. However, in the afternoon hours, when the market empties, it remains there, almost alone, "the only kumica that never leaves Dolac", as locals like to joke.
