The statue was discovered on the 83rd birthday of Pope John Paul II (18.5.2003.)
at the place where the Pope proclaimed Alojzije Stepinac as the Blessed One.

The statue of John Paul II locates on the way from the street to the big outside cerebration area an the big Virgin Mary statue. It's near the bathroom faculty to the right side from the statue. It's just the normal statue that represent the Pope visit in the past. Here is the quorts to know about the Pope visit and about Cardinal Stepinac from wikipedia: "In 1952 he was appointed cardinal by Pope Pius XII. Stepinac died while still under confinement in his parish, amid rumors of poisoning by his Communist captors. On October 3, 1998, Pope John Paul II declared him a martyr and beatified him before 500,000 Croatians in Marija Bistrica near Zagreb" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aloysius_Stepinac). The statue has the plate explaining it in Croatian. If you are John Paul II fan, you can buy candle from the nearby shops and put the candle for him.

Thank Miyoko G
