As Unique as Anything I've seen
May 2021 • Friends
This was such a cool random thing that we happen to stumble upon while walking uptown to see St Mark's church. It's a little sanctuary where people pray and ask for favors, while peacefully sitting on the small benches. The uniqueness comes from that it is located under a building, and like a small tunnel. Really neat place!

Interesting Transition
Dec. 2019
This is an interesting transition from upper and lower Zagreb. The path narrows as you go through it, so it can get crowded.

Very nice
Dec. 2019 • Family
Nice gate on the way to upper town, filled with names thanking saint maria. It is not very big but special with candles lite and gives a nice feeling as you pass by. A few minutes walk up a rather steep street from the main square of Zagreb.

A quiet place for reflection ...

I was looking for Stonegate, and came across this chapel/place of warship. Very solemn, and simple, and spiritual. The gate, his self, was somewhat underwhelming, but has historical significance.

An important & sacred place for locals especially, and others who come to offer Thanksgiving
Sep. 2019
The history of the fire & the apparition of The Virgin Mary who was credited with saving the gateway following the fires of 1731 ( ... I think that detail is correct) still holds a place for Thanksgiving. The Archway is a chapel or shrine which is actively used at all times.
The tiles of Thanksgiving on the wall are worth noting, & the initial use was to record a person or families Thanks for an outcome of prayer or devotion.
The Painting which escaped the fire is a little difficult to appreciate.

Surviving symbol.
Oct. 2019 • Solo
This Stone Gate (Archway) is one of the four original entries into walled Lower Town and still in use. It is believed that when a disastrous fire in 1731 destroyed the town, a vision of Virgin Mary was seen the burnt Ash at this entry. The Gate was reconstructed in 1760 and remained untouched till now. This is a very sacred place for locals, particularly ladies, to pray the church pews, black sooted ceiling. I witnessed a heart touching scene here when two ladies lighted candles at small altar and emotionally praying in tears. An unnoticeable location, but this symbol of unwavering faith remain as most memorable moment for me.

A short stop
Oct. 2019 • Solo
Well I do know the miraculous story behind the paintings in the small chapel in the gate, but that's not the thing that interests me the most. I just like making a stop here to watch how people behave walking through, stopping for a short prayer or laying some flowers. The place really affects some people and give them solace.

a reverend place
Sep. 2019
The story behind this sacred place is unbelievable. Lots of people praying and is a tribute to the power of prayer. A must is to read the history of why it is so reverend though. quite beautiful
