Kranjčevićeva ulica 61, 10 000 Zagreb, Croatia

UPER TOWN

The Upper Town, formerly called Gradec, has kept its old appearance to a great extent, and includes a number of Zagreb sites. Located on the slope of the Medvednica Mountain, it was fortified with walls and towers in the 13th century, and many legends are associated with it, like the ones of the Bloody Bride and Stone Gates – the only remaining out of four gates to Gradec, where there is still a unique and frequented shrine covered with devotional plates.
