Long Foot, these are great pictures. Zagreb to me actually comes up nice in the cold and gloomy weather. In fact I really like it because those old Habsburg buildings really look spooky .....

BTW, I really love the Sessionist Facades like these ones .....






This tram pic looks cute ....



This looks spooky ....



Whats this new building to the right? .....

Great pictures. Zagreb's center looks very dense and clean. Don't know why, but when I think Zagreb I think about architecture like this:

I'm talking about the building on the left - color and architecturewise.

Yeah, I am ******* tired of this waether. Today it is snowing again

I do have some photos of Down Town, but not enough to create great thread. I think we should wait for the spring and take some great sunny photos of Down Town.

Dont get me wrong. I thing its a beautiful and grand building (if only they never took off the original mansard roof ). Because of the weather, the building looks like its haunted with a hundred ghosts, thats what I ment by spooky.

I dont know, guys, but i did hear that the attic of that bulding wasnt completely explored yet...and sometimes strange sort of light is coming out the roof on the right side even when the bulding is empty...

I can't say for sure which one, but i know there are some old buildings on upper town that are supposebly haunted, maybe it's got something to do with underground tunnels up there built in medieval times and mystical hystory of upper town

Besides that, my house in Zagreb looks pretty spooky too, it is right across the railway station, old german style building over hundred years old, although in a pretty good shape and has a bunch of flowers hanging down the windows......it scares passengers

Well, I feel like home in this kvart too - I study on Croatian Studies in Vukovarska (Open univeresity), across Eurotower construction site. I use to walk by those old houses when catching bus to Novi Zagreb. You know what i miss in this area - there is not any good cafe bar Or maybe just I didn't find any.

I think a few bars and cafes are planned in the new buildings. Office workers like the cappucinos before work.

Ohh there is one cute caffe bar next to my building, i just dont think it is on your way to the university. It's called ZUG (CUG), it's got one of most interesting interiors i've ever seen, and makes you feel like you are in an old train, seriously!

I can give you the address, but once you walked in, there is no way the hairy waitresses are gonna let ya go just like that, unless they are too busy fighting with guests over 2 kunas, that is how much a big cup of cappuccino costs
