Amazing view from the top.

This is where you go to see the BEST view of Zagreb, as simple as that. Yeah you need to climb some steps but that's all a part of the experience.

We did a walking tour. The view from the top was beautiful. At 12 noon we stood underneath the Tower, to wait for the canon to be fired. Gosh it was loud. Then the man waves from the window.

School kids and tourists gather here at noon to witness the canon fired. Keep your eyes closed to the tower as it only shot once.

A must for everyone visiting Zagreb to get a great view of the city from this tower. You really appreciate the view of St. Mark's Church and the Cathedral all from the same place. Really beautiful. Highly recommend.

This tower is one of the oldest buildings in the old part of Zagreb. It is known for the gun that fires at gunpoint every day at exactly noon

Built in the 13th century, to guard the southern gate of the Gradec town wall. Located 100 meter from St. Marks church, I recommend you come up here from Ban Josip square, it will have to climb many steps, pay the 20 Kunas, kids are free and climb another 160 wood step to get to the top and enjoy the...

This market is a major in Croatian, is beautiful, surrounded by old buildings or the lack of it as dirty and messy
