Night view of St Mark’s Basilica and Rialto Bridge -Swipe➡️
St. Mark’s Basilica was built on this spot in the 9th century to house very sacred relics—relics that had been stolen! In 828, merchants from Venice stole the body of St. Mark the Evangelist, one of the four Apostles, from Alexandria, Egypt.
According to the legend, they snuck them past the guards by hiding them under layers of pork in barrels!
While at sea, a storm almost drowned the graverobbers and their precious cargo, it’s said that St. Mark himself appeared to the captain and told him to lower the sails. The ship was saved, and the merchants said they owed their safety to the miracle.
This entire story is pictured on the 13th-century mosaic above the left door as you enter the basilica.
Now more facts about the Rialto Bridge:
It was thought that the bridge wouldn’t last long. Rialto Bridge is a single span bridge, i.e., it is anchored at each end with no support in the middle. The engineering of the bridge was considered very audacious and it was thought that it would crumble but it has silenced all its critics and is now considered an architectural marvel and an engineering achievement of the Renaissance period.
It took three years to construct the Rialto Bridge
The construction of the present Rialto Bridge took three years because of unstable conditions.

I sort of feel a bit guilty. I'm well aware that museums need lots of visitors in order to survive but I have to admit it was wonderful this morning going to the William Morris Gallery and being the sole person in there. I've visited many times, yet I don't think I've ever been so immersed in the exhibits.

We only had 2 nights in Croatia’s capital, but we loved every minute of it! Full of rich history and plenty of things to do, we were able to check off Ban Jelačić Square, Zagreb Cathedral, St. Mark’s Church, Dorac Market, plus enjoy a drink on Tkalčićeva Street all within a few hours.
The Streets of Zagreb 🚗 If people were still sending postcards, the one from Zagreb would most definitely include a photo of the St. Mark's church with its recognizable tile roof bearing the coats of arms of Croatia, Dalmatia, Slavonia and Zagreb City, all old Croatian regions. This church dates from the 13th century and is situated in Gornji Grad (the "Upper City", located on the city's hillside), one of the most popular city spots among tourists but also among Croatian politicians on their way to the Parlament, situated on the opposite side of the church.
🇪🇦 ¿Cuál es la imagen que se te viene a la cabeza cuando te dicen Zagreb? .
Seguramente sea esta: la iglesia de San Marcos con su techo colorido y con los escudos de la ciudad y el antiguo 𝖗𝖊𝖎𝖓𝖔 𝖉𝖊 𝕮𝖗𝖔𝖆𝖈𝖎𝖆, 𝕯𝖆𝖑𝖒𝖆𝖈𝖎𝖆 𝖞 𝕰𝖘𝖑𝖆𝖛𝖔𝖓𝖎𝖆 y es justo esto lo que la hace más bonita que su propia catedral .
La iglesia de San Marcos se fundó en el siglo XIII y ha sido reconstruida en distintas ocasiones por todos los incendios que ha sufrido y si buscamos bien, en una de las paredes exteriores se encuentra el escudo de piedra más antiguo de la ciudad .
. // 🇬🇧 Maybe it's the most famous image when somebody thinks in Zagreb, the st Mark's church from the XIII century with its colorful roof (with the emblems of the city and the ancient kingdom of Croatia, Dalmatia and Slavonia) but this is only a church not the main cathedral 😉 .
