Statue of Antun Gustav Matos (Strossmayer Promenade, named after Josip Juraj Strossmayer, Bishop of Dakovo, the famous educator and politician.)
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.
Here s a pic with my sister Sanja, she is definitely great, and my personal tourist guide...
Again, thanks to her and to Ivan, her boyfriend :)
Lotrscak tower, it is most famous by its cannon on the top, always fireing shots (blank, of course) at noon so be warned if you find yourself below at noon, its LOUD!!
This 13th century church features a multi-colored tiled roof showing the coat of arms of the Kingdom of Croatia, Dalmatia, Slavonia, and the city of Zagreb.
This Baroque church was built between 1620 and 1632 and is most famous for its wall paintings and sculptures.
Tkalciceva is a pedestrianised street in the heart of the upper town. It is lined on both sides with bars, restaurants and cafes and is a perfect place to hang out, chill out and people watch.
A petite Baroque building, St. Catherine's Church was built in the early 1600s and then reconstructed after the 1880 earthquake that shook the city.
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.
