Our family of 5 visited Zagreb in July 2016. This gate has a special history. Although it is not a large physical site, the locals come by to light a candle and pray. Nice to visit as part of a tour through the Upper Town.

Lots of history both in and around this Stone Gate. Be sure to check out the statue of St George, the gas street lamps, chains from HMS Victory, and first apothecary, all within less than 30 seconds walk from this gate!

If you enter the Upper Town through the Stone Gate (Kamenita vrata), now a shrine, you will see the only old town gate that has remained intact.

This has been around for ages and it's wonderful how people come to view the statue of Mary as well as light candles and a place for a quick prayer.

The Stone Gate is one of the entrances through the old city wall.The inside of the Stone Gate now includes a shrine devoted to Mary. The local people are very observant-lighting candles and praying at the site. It makes impressive viewing.
