  Matija Gubec's head
by sabsi

At the building at the corner of Markov Trg and Cirilometodska there's a head carved in stone at the edge. According to legend the guy looking at St. Mark's church is Matija Gubec, the leader of the peasant uprising against their feudal lords in 1573. Also according to legend he was executed right at Markov Trg.
