Leaving a lovely accommodation behind and saying farewell to Jasmine we head into the main town of Zagreb to view tallest building which happens to be a church.
Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is spectacular and with its intricate carvings of statues and decorative features it is a wonder to behold. Being a Sunday beautiful organ music filters out into the square and adds a kind of spirituality to the atmosphere. The church was originally built in 1217 then destroyed by the Mongols in 1242, rebuilt in 1287, fortified only to be severely damaged by an earthquake in 1880 and the cathedral “clock stopped! never to go again” – it is now mounted on the wall as a permanent reminder.
We are treated to some delightful traditional dances and we find some lovely fresh fruit at some nearby markets.
Lunch in the park with a couple of beers and we are ready for our 5 hour bus trip to Budapest.
