Here’s a selection of
Zagreb photos, all taken in November 2019. These photos show some of the main sights in Zagreb, including Ban Jelacic Square, the cathedral, St Mark’s Church and other locations in the Upper Town, plus Maksimir Park and more.
We hope you enjoy this album of Zagreb photos!
The main path through Maksimir Park, Maksimirski perivoj One of the ponds in Maksimir Park, with Maksimir Stadium – home of Dinamo Zagreb – overlooking it A pond in Maksimir Park Creative ‘graffiti’ on Ulica Kneza Branimira The elaborate ceiling and central atrium in Nama department store, located just off Ban Jelacic Square A tram about to depart Ban Jelacic Square Looking down on Ban Jelacic Square and its trams from the Zagreb 360 Observation Deck Zagreb Cathedral, as viewed from the Zagreb 360 Observation Deck (Note: Unfortunately, in the March 2020 earthquake, the top of one of the spires snapped off and the other was subsequently removed for safety) Looking south from the Zagreb 360 Observation Deck Looking west from the Zagreb 360 Observation Deck; the street you see stretching out is Ilica Another view from the Zagreb 360 Observation Deck A final look out over to Zagreb Cathedral Delicious ice cream from Vincek – A must Heading towards the lower station of the Funicular (Uspinjaca) The smart entrance to the Funicular / Uspinjaca. As the sign says, in 2019 the funicular was 129 years old! View out of the funicular cab on the way up The Lotrscak Tower, from where a cannon is fired every day at 11am Looking out over Zagreb’s rooftops from the top of the funicular Strossmayer Promenade – as well as a very pretty walk, it is home to the ‘Summer on Strosu’ series of events (https://www.ljetonastrosu.com/) Window to Zagreb All signs lead up The Greek Catholic Co-Cathedral in the Upper Town St Mark’s Church, with its famous tiled roof A close-up of the tiled roof – it shows the coat of arms of the Kingdom of Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia (left) and the coat of arms of the City of Zagreb (right) The Sabor, the Croatian parliament building Vlada, the home of the Croatian government Another look at the Croatian parliament building with its intricate doors A decorative lampost; in the background you can see the parliament building on the left and St Mark’s Church on the right Approaching the Kamenita vrata (Stone Gate) A closer look at the Stone Gate – although originally built many hundreds of years before (and destroyed by fire), this one was built in the 18th century The shrine inside the arch of Kamenita vrata (Stone Gate). Behind the gates is a painting of the Virgin Mary that survived a fire in 1731 which destroyed much else – including the original Kamenita vrata. The gates protecting the painting were constructed in 1778. A statue of St George slaying the dragon, located just outside the Kamenita vrata (Stone Gate). The twin spires of Zagreb’s cathedral peeping through buildings. Ban Jelacic Square, the main square in Zagreb, at dusk. The Croatian National Football Team shop, just off the main square – complete with a tribute to the World Cup runner’s up on the outside! Cvjetni trg (Flower Square) in the rain – you can see why it got its name! A statue of Nikola Tesla Can’t have a Zagreb photos album without a photo of the Ban Jelacic statue! The Mestrovic Pavilion on trg zrtava fasizma (Victims of Fascism Square). Designed by famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic as a House of Fine Arts, it was opened in 1938. It was then turned into a mosque in 1941, functioning as one until 1945. (Locals still refer to it as dzamija – the Croatian word for mosque.) It return to art use in the 2000s and is now the home of the Croatian Association of Artists. Zagreb wall art More signs to sights – at least some things are in a different direction, this time! The stunning Zagreb Cathedral – unfortunately now going further repairs after the earthquake in March 2020 The lovely Dolac Market, the main market in Zagreb located just north of Ban Jelacic Square. Well worth a visit to see all the fruit, veg, food and much more on sale. The indoor part of Dolac Market.
