Chain at the Stone gate
In the heart of Zagreb, in the Upper town, you can find a piece of British history. If we are to believe the stories, the chain on the palace at the corner of Opatička and Kamenita Street originates from Admiral Nelson’s ship Victory (in 1805 Admiral took part in the naval battle of Trafalgar). There is no evidence to support this, but it is easy to see the sequence of events and historical circumstances which would bring the chain to Zagreb. An important role in this story is played by the Austrian general Laval Nugent, who began freeing Rijeka and Dalmatia from the French occupation in the early 19th century with the help of English forces.
