|Sveti Marka, Zagreb|
This is St. Mark's Church in Old Zagreb, Croatia. As you can see in this photo, when we were there they were doing some refurbs to it. The city was being renovated for the World Student Games, and there were thousands of athletes filling up the place. We nearly didn't get a room! If you check out Google Earth, the Church is now bright white. Clearly the plaster on the outside has been whitewashed in recent times.
Seeing that this is the last of the A-Z Guidebook posts, I am going to be a bit naughty and add a photo from Google Earth so you can see the difference. I noticed that this church is now called Svetog Marka; I think the difference is that it was previously in Serbian, and now it is in Croatian. We were there when it was actually still Yugoslavia, rather than Croatia. Yes, quite some time ago!
Can you believe we are up to Z now? I have been joining in with Fiona from Tiffin Bite-Sized Food Adventures from A to Z, literally:=) In some ways, this time has flown, but then again, it has also been a long and interesting, jam-packed couple of years. I am sad to see the last of the A - Z Guidebook, but I know we will all keep travelling and sharing our adventures. Thanks to Fiona for hosting this mammoth effort. Adios, amigos!
