The street Krvavi most (Bloody bridge):

It's a historic name, and it's called like that because in this spot used to be a bridge over stream Medveščak (todays Tkalčićeva street). Zagreb used to be divided to two hills, Gradec and Kaptol and the people of these two hills didn't like eachother very much and they faught on the bridge, that's why they named it "bloody"

Thanks everyone who commented, it's been a long time

This is the famous St. Mark's church, on the St. Mark's Square, in the Upper town. It was originally built in the 13th century. The roof as it is now dates to late 19th century.

Stone Gate (in croatian Kamenita vrata) is the last still standing gate (on the eastern side), of the old walls aroung old city Gradec.

In the big fire in the year 1761. only the painting of Virgin Mary remained intact, and the citizens of Zagreb then built a chappel in Stone Gate, and put the painting in there. From then on, it became a custome that when someone walks through the gate, they stop and say a little prayer. Virgin Mary of Stone Gate is from then on considered the protector of Zagreb.
