Stone Gate

 Kamenita bb    
Zagreb In Your Pocket - Stone Gate (Kamenita vrata)

This archway was one of the four original entries into the walled Gornji Grad of the feudal period. In 1731 a terrible fire destroyed much of the town, and legend has it that a vision of the Virgin Mary could be seen in the burnt ash that remained in this entry. It was reconstructed in 1760 and hasn't been touched since. Today you'll find ladies praying in the church pews, black-soot ceilings and candles glowing as a testament to a people and their faith.
