''Cake'' facade

I'm always happy to see new facade on a Zagreb streets. This one is situated in Mesnička ulica (Butcher's street), name is because during 18. and a part of 19. century many butchers had their shops and houses there. But it lost it's main characteristic at the end of 19. century - only name remained. The street is connection between Lower and Upper Town at the west part of Zagreb center. The sculpture of Andrija Kačić Miošić that I showed you yesterday is placed at the beginning of the street.
I must say I really love this 19. cetury facades - this one reminds me of a wedding cakes.
