The whole story about "Kamenita vrata" and history behind it is quite interesting. This historical place is also incorporated in novels of Maria Juric Zagorka. Go, see it for yourself and you won't be disappointed. Light a candle.

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.

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.
