St. Mark’s Square
St. Mark’s Square is the perfect place for lovers of history and politics. It is the central square in Zagreb’s Upper Town, formerly known as Stjepan Radić’s Square. Apart from St. Mark’s Church, the square also sports important governmental buildings: Banski dvori (the seat of the Government of Croatia), Croatian Parliament and Constitutional Court of Croatia. Figuratively, St. Mark’s Square may stand for the whole of Croatian politics, i.e. the politics of the Croatian Government or Parliament. Ever since 1242, when King Bela IV granted Zagreb the status of a free royal city with the Golden Bull, St. Mark’s Square has had a key position in its history and daily life – from the medieval Gradec to the present day Upper Town. It is located in the medieval part of Zagreb called Gradec or Gornji grad and has dictated the directions of the development of settlements for centuries, even today.
