As you enter the gates you will find this small religious site that the locals still worship in. Take a moment, light a candle and say a prayer if you are of the faith at the Kamenita Vrata (Stone Gate) in Gornji Grad. This is the last remaining gate into the old town.

The Stone Gate, which was the eastern Gate to Gradec town, was built in the 13th Century, as was the adjacent tower. The gate displayed a painting of... More

Surviving door of original walls of old city. This is a passageway between Upper town and Zagreb center. Locals go there to pray so be courteous, respectful, and quiet. A historic entrance that awaits to greet you to Upper Town.

This is one of those places popular with tourists but also of special importance to locals that go there to pray. Visit it on your way back or to Zagreb upper town. Be conscientious though as yes, it's a tourist spot but don't forget the religious significance when you pass through (i.e. don't be noisy and disturb the people inside).

This is a historic carriage gate through which a cobbled path connects the Zagreb center with the historic Upper Town, now a government seat. It houses a shrine to Mary lit by supplicants' candles and covered in stone plaques bearing prayers and thanks. There are some pews for silent prayer. It has no amenities, but being halfway between the main... More

At the present time, it is under external renovation - however, you can walk through it and experience the atmosphere. As we are not religious, in any way, we just literally walked through - did not light a candle, or view the shrine. I'm sure others will appreciate it much more.
