4 reviews of Stone Gate

Historic Gate

Only one of the city's four gates, the eastern one, has been preserved and this leads to the Gradec neighbourhood. Apart from being practical, it's also surrounded by a legend which is very important to Zagreb's citizens ve are very devout. According to this legend, the great fire of 1731 destroyed nearly all of the wooden door except for a painting of the Virgin and Child by an unknown 17th century artist. People thought that it was a magical or a miraculous painting and since then, they have come to the site to pray and make offerings. On the inside of the doors on the wall, they have used the space as a chapel with benches for the people to pray before the image locked behind iron bars and surrounded by candles and flowers.
