Running along the southern rim of Gradec hill, the tree-lined Strossmayer Promenade was built at the end of the 19th century with money donated by private citizens. It was named after Bishop Josip Juraj Strossmayer, a prominent member of the Croatian cultural revival and an immensely influential figure in 19th-century society and politics. The nearby State Weather Bureau has been continuously tracking weather conditions ever since its foundation in 1862, contributing greatly to our knowledge of how global climatic changes take place.
