Tower Lotrščak

This is a famous Tower Lotrščak that was a part of the fortification of the Upper town Gradec. It was built in 18. century, but it got this final shape in the 19. century. It is mostly famous for the cannon called Grički top that fires every day exactly at noon. This practice started in 1876. and it helps the people of Zagreb to have their watches always set correctly.
