Sunny day in Zagreb

Today I had to run some errands--buying train tickets to Venice, picking up a translation of my criminal record check (necessary so I can get temporary residency). So we took advantage of the bright sunshine and somewhat warmer weather, and made a touristy walk of it.
This is at the base of the funicular.
And this is riding the funicular. it costs 4kuna and takes less than a minute.
The view from the promenade at the top.
More view.
Not far from the top of the funicular is this beauty, St. Marks church.
And this is the Stone Gate. It dates to the 13th century and was one of the entrances to the upper city. There's a chapel inside now, but it's still used as a passage between the upper and lower cities.
And here's the upper part of Dolac, the market.

  1. In my little Zagreb guide they call the Funicular. The Great Old Lady. I like the term. I'm so eager to make my own experiences in Zagreb and to meet you and Allison. YEAH!!!
