Porta di Pietra (Kamenita Vrata), Zagreb
(4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
In 1731, a disastrous fire burned down all the wooden parts of Porta di Pietra (Kamenita Vrata), except the one item that was later found in the ashes: a painting of the Virgin and Child. Since then, this 13th-century gate has been a famous pilgrimage site. In the passageway you'll see a chapel dedicated to the Mother of God with her statuette, and plaques that the locals leave to convey gratitude to loved ones. They consider this place one of the symbols of the city. You may light a candle if you wish. Porta di Pietra (Kamenita Vrata) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Zagreb Edition.

  • It is from the 13TH century and is the last door of access to the area above the Gradec, is in the historic centre, located on a hill. Is you can reach it by the Radiceva Street which is very marketable and with many bars. It is a door that was turned into a shrine, and there is the Virgin Mary, patron saint of Zagreb, where many locals go to pray. It is where they entered the city.

  • In the Archway, you can experience genuine religiosity. However, it has more tourists than believers on the spot.

  • allways nice and preffered passage to Upper town whenever arround there. say a little prayer lit a candle
  • Old passage / entrance to Zagreb's Upper Town with the famous image of the Virgin Mary, which after a long-ago fire only remained intact. In honor of this event was built a small chapel at the entrance to the Upper Town. Favorite tourist destination with a rich history.
  • A historical entrance to the Upper Town of Zagreb. In the passage you can pray in the shrine of Virgin Mary.
  • Beautiful entrance to Zagreb's Upper Town which containt an image of Virgin Mary which remained intact after a fire that burnt out everything else. Usually a prayer spot for a lot of people so have that in mind while visiting it.
  • There is nothing special about the gate, but there is a holy shrine with a picture of the Virgin Mary and child as the center piece. Locals prays there, so please show some respects.
