Gate sights in Zagreb

Don't miss the Stone Gate - the eastern gate to medieval Gradec Town (Gornji Gradec), now a shrine. According to legend, a great fire in 1731 destroyed every part of the wooden gate except for the painting of the Virgin and Child by an unknown 17th-century artist. People believe that the painting possesses magical powers and come regularly to pray before it and leave flowers.
On the western façade of the Stone Gate you'll see a statue of Dora, the heroine of an 18th-century historical novel who lived with her father next to the Stone Gate.
