oday we celebrate feast day of Sveti Rok - St Roch. Even though he is more popular in southern Croatia, we’ll stick to Zagreb. Many are unaware of the importance that residents of the old cities of Zagreb attributed to this saint. And when I say cities, I really do mean two towns – Gradec and Kaptol. They started off as two not so friendly medieval towns separated by a stream, and were unified into the sole city of Zagreb only in 19th century.
