Marshal Tito Square is one of the biggest squares in Zagreb. The square is located in Lower Town, with the Croatian National Theatre at its centre. To many, it is the most beautiful square in Zageb. The present-day square was formed in the period between 1856 and 1964. Being one of the more prominent squares in Zagreb, its name was often changed in accordance to political circumstances of the time and even today some think that the nname should change due to Tito being a negative historical personality.  A petition was issued suggesting that the name should be changed into Square of the Croatian Republic however, it failed and the name remained the same. The square still stands today as one of the most famous and beautiful squares in Zagreb.
