#27 of 269 in Things to do in Zagreb
The Lotrščak Tower is a fortified tower located in Zagreb, Croatia, in an old part of town called Gradec or Gornji grad (Upper Town). The tower, which dates to the 13th century, was built to guard the southern gate of the Gradec town wall. The name is derived from Latin campana latrunculorum, meaning "thieves' bell", referring to a bell hung in the tower in 1646 to signal the closing of the town gates.CannonThe Grič cannon (Grički top) is one of the Zagreb landmarks. In the 19th century, a fourth floor and windows were added to the tower and a cannon was placed on the top. Since 1 January 1877, the cannon is fired from the tower on Grič to mark midday. The cannon was to give the sign for exact noon for the bell-ringers of the city's churches.

  • The tower was part of the wall around Gradec, one of the two cities that were formerly separated, each in a hill and today both are old part of Zagreb. The other city was Kaptol, city of bishops, and on the hill where is the Cathedral of Zagreb. From Lotrscak there is a wonderful view to the Cathedral and around Zagreb to the River Sava and beyond. Every day at noon a cannon fires from the tower and habit of checking their watches according to these cannon were citizens of Zagreb.

  • The canon is fired from here at mid day. There are amazing views from the top. The only way up is to climb the stairs.  more »

  • Nice to see it,but it could be better.It is good just because of the people who made it in the past and nothing has changed.4 stars just because of the view on the city from the top of the tower
  • A great place to go for a lovely view of Zagreb. Go at midday to see the cannon go off. Don't forget to cover your ears and look out for the confetti!
  • Nice place Great place to just walk and see some lovely view of Croatia, very nice at Christmas time. Lots of food/drinks live music
  • Nice view of Zagreb city, best to go at midday when they fire the Canon to announce 12:00.
  • Every day at noon you can hear a cannon firing from the tower. Earplugs recommended.
