Zagreb, Croatia -- ...that naive art roof. Like Zagreb's much larger cathedral, the 14th century St. Mark's was restored after the 1880 earthquake by Hermann Bollé under the direction of his mentor and fellow neo-Gothicphile Friedrich von Schmidt. To the left is a former presidential palace and the parliament building is to the right -- the heart of this new nation. The square got new cobblestones in 2006 and is kept spotless. We found it relatively empty except for the group of schoolchildren awaiting entrance into St. Mark's.
