    Funicular

    Opened in 1889, the funicular that joins the lower and upper towns is only 66 metres long, so it's a short ride -- or you can take the flight of steps that goes alongside it.

    The area around Tkalciceva street, behind the main square, is full of restaurants, cafes and bars - lots of places to choose from.

    St Marks Church

    Yes it's just another church, one of many in Europe, but it does have a fantastic tiled roof - showing the coat of arms of Croatia.

    .......The legend (mentioned in the previous chapter) inspired a belief in the miraculous nature of the painting, and many people still come here to worship the Blessed Virgin and Child.

    Radićeva street is raising from Jelačić square to the northwest. It is convenient way to reach Gornji grad through Kamenita vrata (Stone gate).

    You have reached Tkalčić street. Choose one of the pubs and sit!

    Tkalčićeva is the best street to have a drink I have ever been to.

    An old old building in Upper Town

    by zrim Written Jan 2, 2003

    It is fascinating to study the architecture in the Upper Town. Some buildings have been beautifully restored. Others are in rough shape--but have a sense of beauty as well.

    worn but interesting
