Beautiful religious place

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.

This is a historic carriage gate through which a cobbled path connects the Zagreb center with the historic Upper Town, now a government seat.

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.

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.

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
