Why You'll Love It

Zagreb’s famous Stone Gate—the last remaining gate from the old city walls—is known more for the shine of the Madonna and Child in the gate itself. You’ll often see people praying and lighting candles, once I saw a ceremony with chanting. The painting is said to have survived a fire.
