    Varazdin - The "Virgin" Mermaid

    by Martin_S. Written Dec 18, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Virgin Mermaid, Varazdin, Croatia

    Favorite thing: Okay, okay, so we don't REALLY know if she is, or was, a virgin. But that was what we decided to call her when we came across her in the center square of Varazdin. But the question of her virginity aside, what type of store or establishment would be likely to have a "sign" like this over its door.
    When we were there it was closed so we could not check. If anyone knows, please let ME know so I can put in a word for them here.
    Whatever, the statue itself is quite eye catching as we had never seen a mermaid with a split tail (and for other "reasons" of course !!!)

    Door detail, Varazdin, Croatia

    Favorite thing: While walkng around the old town center in Varazdin we came across this beautiful door on the entrance to a small church. Above the door it says:
    "Deo Labores Consecramus", I would think this is Latin, can anyone give a translation??
    But anyway loved the detail in the wood and also the ironwork.

    Sundial in Varazdin, Croatia

    Favorite thing: We found this beautiful sundial in one of the city squares. When we checked the time against our modern newfangled clock thingies (watches), we found that it was super accurate. We decided we would like one, but could not figure out how to attach them to our wrists...any ideas.

    Varazdin city center, Croatit

    Favorite thing: Here you can see some of the beautiful old buildings in the center of the old town. It is amazing that roofs of this type are still holding up and the buidlings are being used, not as well preserved museums or protected buildings, but as everyday dwellings.

    Varazdin - old town main street

    by Martin_S. Written Nov 22, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Varazdin main street, Croatia

    Favorite thing: Zdenka said we would love this town and she was right. It was quiet, clean and lovely. This was one of the main streets in the old town section that was closed to motorized traffic and you could wander the street without having to dodge cars. The day we arrived it was also Sunday, so it was even more quiet than usual and many of the shops were closed, but for seeing the architectural and design elements of this city if was fine.
