Dear readers,

after a long thinking, deciding, changing thought and all the doubts and questions that came along the way I finally decided to stop writing this blog. Although I really liked the concept at first (and that was one of the main reasons why I ever started this blog) now I kind of got tired of it. And if it doesn't make me happy anymore I honestly don't see the point of doing it. Still, good news is that I plan on starting a new blog very soon. The subject will still be Zagreb but I plan to make a completely new concept which should present my own vision of Zagreb! All the things I love and also all the things I don't like so much about this city. At this very spot you will be able to find a new blog address and all the other necessary details soon!

I would also like to use this moment to thank all the subscribers and followers for reading and commenting! Thank you very much! Hope to see you all in a short while on a new blog!

Hugs,
Helena

A Women's World


This photo I took at The Centre for Women's Studies which is placed in the Memorial apartment of Marija Jurić Zagorka. I already made one post about Zagorka - a Croatian writer and journalist who was a fighter for human rights, especially women’s human rights. So I find this place a happy symbiosis - a true center where cultural heritage and education and research meet! It is a very warm place where one can always feel welcomed!

Uspinjača - Zagreb Funicular


So, this is probably one of the most commonly photographed views in Zagreb. Here you can see the Zagreb Funicular built in 1890 that still operates and is connecting the Lower town and Ilica street with Upper town known as Gradec. Also here you can see the Tower Lotrščak I already told you about in one of my earlier posts. 

Have a nice weekend everybody!

Twilight over Zrinjevac


It was finally sunny in Zagreb! And sadly I missed it because of work. However, I took this photo of beautiful park Zrinjevac during twilight.

February theme day - Manduševac at night


This is Manduševac - one of the most popular Zagreb fountains and a true city symbol! It is located on the Zagreb main square at the place where a real well used to be and was commonly used by people of Zagreb in the old days.

Wishing for spring to come


I can't wait for spring and warmer weather! A the moment the temperature is still low and the weather is mostly gray. This photo I took few days ago - it was such a bliss! This is Mažuranac (Mažuranić Square) and park near the Croatian national theater.

History?


I would really like to know how often do people use these nowadays? And is it becoming history?
