Stumbled apon this by accident this amazing sight in the middle of a modern city. This monument to Mother Mary and its alter to her and baby Jesus is a little gem. Also at approx 12 noon people stop there daily bussiness and take time to pray as those non believer's rush by. A ture moment to refect and what an up lifting act. There was a priests and nun's praying along side the rich and poor.

This is the only surviving gate of the mediaeval fortifications of Zagreb. It’s also the location of a chapel with the shrine of our lady of the Stone Gate housing the painting of Mary with infant Jesus. The shrine miraculously survived a 17th-century fire and is now protected by an iron fence.

Stone gate is the only surviving medieval gate leading to the city of Zagreb. There is a shrine to Mother Mary there. The atmosphere is very calm and soothing. A great place to include in your walking tour...

Stone Gate is the eastern gate to medieval town and Zagreb's most important shrine. The only remaining entrance to the Old Town.

It houses the painting of the Mother of God which miraculously survived the 17th century fire.

The name translates to "Stone gate" and is only one of the five gates remaining that were built in the 13th century. It houses a small chapel dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. It has a painting in it that survived from the fire in 1731. It has a little seating area in it for those who want to pray. It was a place that felt tranquil and at peace and I really enjoyed it. It is open 24/7. I really enjoyed it and suggest this should be on anyone's itinerary if you are visiting Zagreb. A lovely place.

The stone gate ( Kamenita Vrata ) are one of the best preserved monuments of old Zagreb. Walking thru down to the lower town is inevitable to go through the Stone Gate. This represent the passage of a building shaped like a rectangular tower. This are part of old Zagreb's defense system and are the only ones that still exist today. They were built in the 13th century, and they got their present shape in 1760. In the passage there is a chapel with the image of the Mother of God from the Stone Gate, the patron saint of the city, according to an image that was undisturbed survived a great fire in 1731. Very Interesting place with a rich history. The atmosphere is great.

Very interesting place - outside - a massive medieval tower, renovated in the 18th century, the most important entrance to the Zagreb's Upper Town - Kamenita vrata (Stone Gate).
Inside - a picture of Virgin Mary holding the baby Jesus surrounded with flowers and praying people. In fact, it's a little chapel with an old lady selling candles and many, many marble plates mounted on the walls saying: 'Thank You Mary for saving our son' or 'Virgin Mary, thank you for healing me' .
This picture originally belonged to an wealthy woman. There was a big fire in Zagreb in the 18th century and her house was burned down. She found the picture in the ruins, its wooden frame burned, but the picture itself untouched. That was considered a miracle and she donated the picture to the city of Zagreb.

Kamenita Vrata or "Stone door" is a place I always go to when I go to Zagreb. Kamenita vrata has a picture of the Blessed Virgin Mary where in the year 1731, everything burned and was in ashes but the picture of The Blessed Virgin was unharmed and undamaged except for the frame.

This is a place that many people have come throughout the years to see this special picture and also to bring petitions to God to hear. There have been many cures and so all around the stone gate you will see plaques stating people's names, thanksgivings for miracles and petitions.

Really a neat and interesting place.

This Stone Gate (Archway) is one of the four original entries into walled Lower Town and still in use. It is believed that when a disastrous fire in 1731 destroyed the town, a vision of Virgin Mary was seen the burnt Ash at this entry. The Gate was reconstructed in 1760 and remained untouched till now. This is a very sacred place for locals, particularly ladies, to pray the church pews, black sooted ceiling. I witnessed a heart touching scene here when two ladies lighted candles at small altar and emotionally praying in tears. An unnoticeable location, but this symbol of unwavering faith remain as most memorable moment for me.
