Zagreb, Croatia -- Here the cannon peaks out of the uppermost window. These windows were added to the tower in the 19th century and, since 1877, a cannon has been fired daily at noon so that the many bell ringers in town can set their watches. We found the iron cross at upper left to be a common exterior decorating touch in Zagreb. These bind stone blocks together in case of earthquake. The city walls in this area (long torn down, of course) were made with chains inside of them for the same reason.
