The Stone Gate is not only a beautiful place to visit but a place to pray and reflect. You can light a candle in this peaceful place too.

If you know the history of Zagreb and Stone Gate than you can see some beauty, but nobody write it down so tourist can read it.

We found this tiny gem as we were walking from St. Marks church back to our hotel. We thought it was just a tunnel/pass through in the road... what a surprise when we actually got there! There was no sign that we could see to indicate what we had found but my friends and I loved spending a couple of... More

Wonderful part of the city … a quiet beautiful historic site! Those who have interest in religious site will want to include it on your walk through Zagreb. Light a candle in memory for a loved one.

A few yards up the street towards St Mark's from the Stone Gate, attached to a low stone plinth, there are two chains. I've heard that these are the rudder chains from HMS Victory, placed there by the helmsman, a Croat, in gratitude for having survived the slaughter of the Battle of Trafalgar.

Well Stone Gate, is just that a gate, with a small shrine and place to pray as you pass through it. My wife and I just walked past initially half thinking that maybe it was the gate, but still not 100% sure. There was on real signage to identify it as the gate and no tourist shops near by (which...

It seems like a great place for a chapel. There is a magical aura created by the dark cool temperature of the cave like gateway and the aroma of the candles lighted to the Virgin. It was funny to hear a tour guide mention to her group that the device on the very top of the structure has been said... More

This stone gate is more like a little alcove. It is simple yet nice and there is a shrine where people pray. There's also a sort of open-air chapel inside where people worship. I'm Christian but not Catholic so I haven't prayed or worshipped there but it has a very reverent and peaceful presence. There is a "thank you" wall... More
