Zagreb Solar System Reviews
Journey through the Solar System without a rocket Mar 22, 2014
The Zagreb Solar System is a model of the Solar System in the city of Zagreb, Croatia. It consist of the sculpture Grounded Sun by Ivan Kožarić made in 1971, and models of the nine planets made by Davor Preis in 2004 (Pluto was still a planet back then) in the corresponding scale to the sun. The scale of the model is 1:680 000 000. It’s a fun journey if attempt to locate all of the planets as they are scattered around the city.
