Beautiful and Mysterious Visoka Street

Visoka is the only dead-end street in the upper town area. Up until now, it used to have a strange private feel. So quiet, so empty, so incredibly beautiful, separated from the rest of the city, most people unaware of its mere existence. Now that there's been so much talk about the "mansion in Visoka", I can't see how they're going to keep people away. When people come to see the gorgeous villa, they'll be surprised to see all the memorial plaques on other buildings in that street - remembrances of Croatian personalities of historical importance who used to live there, especially some revolutionary artists.

Little Boy Attending Gricevanje

Gricevanje festival organized a horror-story-contest. I applied with my interpretation of the boy sculpture from the photo and the spooky location he's forced to call home. I thought it was a good idea, since the Park Grič, where the sculpture is placed, bears the very name that inspired the festival.

Secret Well

One of the charming off-the-beaten-track features of Zagreb is an old water well. It's hiding in Demetrova Street No11,  behind a massive wooden yard gate. Don't hesitate to peek inside and get a closer look at the huge draw-well, the only preserved well of the Upper Town Zagreb. It's as much as 27 meters deep!
