It was a little way walking from city center but worth going for the history of the place and also a place lot of people go for worship.

Located in the old town ( upper town ) ,quite near St Marks Church it's a small chapel hard to find if you don't have the right location . It's inside a "wall" and it has an altar and the Virgin Mary . It's supposed to be like a sacred place in Zagreb but it's not really impressive . It's... More

You can't say that you have been to Zagreb unless you visit at least 2 of the main landmarks- St Marks Church and the Kamenita Vrata. Even for a photo opportunity, this place deserves even a brief visit.

I randomly passed by here while looking for St. Mark's church and i got completely amazed by the atmosphere of this place and for seeing every passer-by stoping to say a prayer, even if a little quick one. It was night already and seeing this place without expecting it, only candle lighted was really moving.

This is a small chapel inside the stone gate, one of the old entrances to the upper old town. It's fun to come upon by accident as it's so unexpected. It's a public thoroughfare and yet there is always faithful about either at the small altar or sitting in a few pews in the corner. You kind of feel like... More

This is just a fast stop near St. Mark's church. It has some benches around for prayer and a memorial. There were a couple of people praying while we went through the area. I wish more information was available onsite which told what this was all about.

Located close to Upper Town, it is a Catholic religious shrine. Interesting to see but value of site is religious, not touristic.

It is a must to go through this "porta" (door) and say a prayer as Croatians have been doing for centuries... you can even light a candle if you feel inclined to do it.
