Trg svetog Marka

You can reach the upper town Gradec in Zagreb by walking over from Kaptol (including some stairs to take; have a break at one of the bars in Ulica Ivana Tkalčića) or by the funicular bringing you to Lotršcak tower. From there it is a short walk to the main square: St. Mark’s square (Trg svetog Marka). The building with the multicoloured roof is St. Mark’s church (Crkva svetog Marka).

It is a Gothic style church with a beautiful Romanesque window and has been built from the 13th century CE on. The tiles on the roof show the coat of arms of Zagreb and the kingdom of Croatia during Habsburgian times. On the right side of the church you can find the parliament of Croatia, the Sabor.
