Today I made a short trip to our neighboring country, Slovenia and the magical lake of Bled and it was snowing all day.
Croatia is a filming location for the HBO series “Game of Thrones” so it’s quite appropriate that winter came here.
So, I got a text from a friend: “I went to mass on Sunday in Zagreb’s cathedral and I couldn’t focus, all I could think about were the casino’s chandeliers […]
Wow… the Zagreb Cathedral. So much history, so much different artistic styles in one place: medieval and revived Gothic, casino’s chandeliers, a touch of Baroque… Wait… what? Can we just go back for a second? Casino’s chandeliers?
This is my first post on this blog about Zagreb and it seems a little bit strange to start at the very end, with Zagreb central cemetery called Mirogoj. I’m not particularly fond of graveyards (who is?), though I enjoy seeing the faces of my guests when I tell them that our next stop would be the cemetery. However, Mirogoj is an architectural wonder and one of the most beautiful cemeteries in Europe.
