Up until 1931 a cavalry regiment of the city with stables and barracks was located in this area. The name of the present-day park comes from a French word, “manege”, meaning cavalry school. The paths of the Manjež Park lead you through flowerbeds and exuberant plant life to monuments and statues among which are the statues of the famous Polish composer and pianist Frederic Chopin, and the globally known Hungarian composer and pianist Franz Liszt.
The park especially comes to life during flower exhibitions which are held a few times a year. The Yugoslav Drama Theatre is also located on the premises of the park, and it is one of the most significant avant-garde theatres in Europe.
