Few more pics from me:



Jelačić square – book market:



Bogovićeva – spring atmosphere


Gajeva


Praška



Zrinjevac










Piece of poetry in honour of great kajkavian poet Dragutin Domjanić

Tam sunce je strusilo zlato
Čez listje na preprut i na me,
Iz luga su lukale guste
Dišeće črlene ciklame.
Ciklame, krvave ciklame,
Da broja ni moći im znati,
Tak puno, da čoveku čisto
I smililo nakel se stati.
Veliju, da negda je zdavna
Tam grobje zapušćeno bilo
I vsega je preprut prerasla
I cvetje ciklamah je skrilo.
Vuz reku železna je cesta,
Železna tam ružiju kola
I voziju naše soldate
Bez broja prek brega i dola.
I tam, gde su najgorši boji,
Gde nigdo se smrti ne straši,
I najviše gde ih pogiba,
Sigurno tam budeju naši.
Po celomu svetu su boji
Na hiljade zmirom ih pada
I samo se širiju grobja
Prek zemlje i sela i grada.
*
I došla je noć ili žalost
Na nebo, na zemlju i na me
I videl sem vsigde po svetu
Ciklame, krvave ciklame.













My favourite building in Zagreb, this is where everything begins and ends



I hope I will have some time to take pics of western part of Lenuci horseshoe – HNK, Mimara, Museum of arts and crafts…

That street conects Draškovićeva and Rački street, it is close to National bank. You can see Privredna banka building on the first picture, it was just taken from the back side.

Well, you can't be familiar with the whole city. This is the picture of that area, it is small, but you can see where it is:

Yeah, it is interesting that this building was mosque only 4 years (during WWII), but even today people call it džamija (mosque). Nobody says art pavillion. Building was originaly built for art exibitions (in 1938. by Ivan Mestrovic), but turned in mosque in 1941. by Ante Pavelić. After WWII communists knocked down 3 tower which were built around building and settled Museum of revolution there. During the war in 90-s Museum of revolution was thrown out. 2 years ago this building was finaly reconstructed according to original plans. Anyway I love it

It's a lovely building! It was the very first museum in Europe designed with a special transparent roof which would under certain angles create the effect of an open dome - like in planetarium!
In 1941 the roof was covered with concrete and the building turned into mosque with three additional minarets for our ex-'flowers' :



the mosque in 1942 :



1997 :

Thank God those rubbish Serbian built YUGO cars are all but gone from Croatian streets. They really give any place an eastern European look.

In addition to an elegant Central European capital city, the modern cars in Zagreb give it a western look.
