In all our travels we’ve really never seen anything like Porta di Pietra. Literally built into the underside of a building at the turn of a street/walkway. When first we entered, there were no candles burning but we noticed the ceiling and walls absolutely darkened...More

The entrance to Old City Zagreb, hiding stories and legends - guarded by the picture of Mother Mary (said to survived the fire which burned down most of Old Zagreb), it offers a resting place for anyone passing.

This gate has a tiny interesting chapel built into gate to house the religious icon/painting that miraculously escaped a 1731 fire. There are 2 pews and one can light candles.

You will pass through it at some stage during your visit through the old town. More of religious significance to the locals. For tourists, it's something to see, experience and learn about. Will take 5 to 10 minutes.

If you are in Zagreb, you're bound to pass thru the Kamenita Vrata some time or another. It is quite nice, decorated with stone plates and also a place for prayers inside.

This looks like it is just going to be a tunnel, but when inside you see that it is like a small little chapel that you can walk through. Inside they have candles and pews so that you can pray.

We visited here on our extended weekend, it's an open gateway but a place of prayer. Candles are lit under the arch, it's a most serene and unusual location.
