Art Pavilion in 1910
Hungarian culture, especially the language, were imposed on Croatian’s during the rule of Count Károly Khuen-Héderváry de Hédervár who served as a Viceroy at the end of the 19th Ct. The resistance against it went so far that even the Hungarian Flag was burnt in 1895 by a group of Croatian Students.
However, this Pavilion, designed by the Viennese firm Fellner & Helmer (they designed the Zagreb National Theater as well), is a true remnant of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It fits perfectly into the surrounding and the most of the citizens forgot that it was built for the Millennium Exhibition in Budapest, and that it was just shipped to Croatian Capital from there.
