Upper Town

Old part of Zagreb

The upper town is full of charm and it gathers a lot of Zagreb interest points such as the Dolac market, St Mark Church, the museum of broken relationships, Kamenita Vrata (Stone gate), and the cathedral (Kaptol).

 

The upper town is exciting and calm at the same time. It is like "sleeping beauty" offering its charms and stopping time to let you enjoy its beauty and wealth.

 

St. Mark Square is emblematic of the upper town and of the city of Zagreb. In the centre of the square is St. Mark church, famous for its roof representing the arms of the Tripartite Kingdom (Croatia, Dalmatia and Slavonia) and those of the city of Zagreb.

 

The architect who made this roof is the famous Herman Bolle who also directed the restoration of the Cathedral and the cemetery of Mirogoj.
