Photographer's Note

This is Zagreb Cathedral in the old town, and just before to start rain I felt special lights to shot this moment. I hope You enjoy!

Zagreb Cathedral on Kaptol is probably the most famous building in Zagreb, as its spires can be seen from many locations in the city. At the end of the 15th century, the Turks invaded Bosnia and Croatia, triggering the construction of a renaissance fortification wall around the cathedral. Few of these fortifications are still intact. In the 17th century, a fortified renaissance watchtower was erected on the south side, and was used as a military observation point, because of the Turkish threat.
