Church of St. Mark … @Zagreb [Croatia]

As you walk up the street and see St. Mark’s Church shining in bright sunlight … Wow! Since it is open only during mass times, I could not see the interiors. The Church is considered to be one of the oldest buildings in Zagreb and was built in the 13th Century. Since this is an active church (with Mass Etc.), there was quite a crowd around it.

The streets around St. Mark’s Square (where the Church is located) is very nice to explore. Though I was a bit surprised by cars and other vehicles really speeding along the narrow streets. I had to watch out for them.

You can see the “Medieval coat of arms of Croatia, Dalmatia and Slavonia” and also the “Emblem of Croatia” …
