Zagreb, Croatia -- Thanks to Wikipedia for this aerial view of the old town, Gradec, rising from Gornji Grad hill. At about the center we see St. Mark's church between the presidential palace (above) and the house of parliament (below). At about 8:30 position we see the funicular's railroad track sticking out like a long tongue reaching to the main square just outside this picture on the left. To the funicular's right is one of the few remaining defensive towers which still fires a cannon daily. The lower quadrangle (6 to 8 o'clock) is mostly a complex constructed by the Jesuits. In all, three religious orders had substantial real estate here.
