Zagreb’s Upper Town (Gornji Grad) is a network of little streets that stretch between two hills:
Kaptol and Gradec. It is a delightful place to explore Zagreb rich history and state buildings, including parliament. St. Mark Square is emblematic of the upper town and of the city of Zagreb. In the centre of the square is St. Mark church, famous for its roof representing the arms of the Tripartite Kingdom (Croatia, Dalmatia and Slavonia) and those of the city of Zagreb.
Proceed along the old wall through Great Stone gate, called Kamenita Vrata, where miracles happen. According to legend, a great fire in 1731 destroyed every part of the wooden gate except for the painting of the Virgin and Child.
