What a legend!

This mid-13th century tower has a legend, and what a legend! Supposedly, a cannon shot fired from the Lotrscak tower (which guards the south gate) crossed the Sava River and landed in a Turkish camp, right when a chicken dish was being brought to the Pasha for lunch. The accuracy of the cannons led the invading Turk to call off his invasion of the city. As this shot was at noon, a memorial shot is fired at the same hour every day. You can climb the tower and have a 360-degree panoramic view of Zagreb. Opening hours: 11:00am - 8:00pm, Tuesday - Sunday. Entry fee is 10 HRK.

Tower lotrak

The Lortšćak Tower is the only preserved medieval tower. It is located at the top of Zagreb and dominates the city. This tower, which is the only remnant of the ancient wall that surrounded and protected the city, visit. It can climb up to admire the beautiful view of Zagreb. In the penultimate stage, is the gun that you can also see during the visit. This tower rang the closing of the city and called the people to hide behind the walls. Remember, for over a century, the cannons roar daily noon sharp.

Tour de lotrščak

La tour Lortšćak est la seule tour médiévale conservée. Elle se situe dans le haut de Zagreb et domine la ville. Cette tour, qui est le seul vestige des anciens remparts qui entouraient et protégeaient la ville, se visite. On peut monter tout en haut pour y admirer la très belle vue de Zagreb. A l’avant dernier étage, se trouve le canon qui l’on peux aussi voir pendant la visite. Cette tour sonnait la fermeture de la ville et appelaient la population à s’abriter derrière les murailles. En souvenir, depuis plus d’un siècle, le canon tonne tous les jours à midi sonnant.

Au détour d’une rue, au niveau du parc Zrinjevac, se trouve une étonnante petite tour. Celle-ci est une tour météorologie. Ses quatre facettes indiquent chacune une donnée comme la pluviométrie, la température, la pression... ou encore des relevés sismologiques en temps réel. Cette tour météo est très importantes pour les Zagrebois qui y jettent un coup d’oeil dès qu’ils passent devant.

The bell of thieves

Built in the twelfth century and remodeled several vlte in the nineteenth century, it was always the main defensive core of the southern part of the upper town. Today it remains the historical significance and legendary, but it is also noticeable that maintains its structure, despite the alterations, also thanks to the thickness of its walls, about 195 cm. The name is Latin origin: it derives from latronculorum bell (bell thieves) once marked the arrival of the night and the subsequent closure of the gates of the city after an hour when within the city could only wander thieves. Since 1877 the tower respects a traditional in the city every day at noon is fired a volley. A tradition that comes from a legend: the Ottoman army was ready to attack the city, when a cannon game from the hill of Gradec centered it in the middle of the tent of the Pasha, killing him. Amazement and fear were such as to induce the turkish army to retreat.

La campana de ladri

Costruita nel XII secolo e rimaneggiata più vlte nel XIX secolo, fu da sempre il principale nucleo difensivo della zona meridionale della città alta. Oggi ne rimane il significato storico e leggendario, ma apprezzabile è anche la sua struttura che conserva, nonostante i rimaneggiamenti, anche grazie allo spessore dei suoi muri, di circa 195 centimetri.

Il nome ha origine latine: deriva da campana latronculorum (campana dei ladri): una volta segnava l'arrivo della notte e la conseguente chiusura delle porte cittadine dopo un'ora in cui all'interno della città avrebbero potuto aggirarsi soltanto ladri.

Dal 1877 la torre rispetta una tradizione cittadina: ogni giorno a mezzogiorno viene sparata una salva di cannone. Una tradizione che deriva da una leggenda: l'esercito ottomano era pronto ad attaccare la città, quando una cannonata partita dal colle di Gradec centrò in pieno la tenda del pascià, uccidendolo. Lo stupore e la paura furono tali, da indurre l'esercito turco alla ritirata.

Tower Lotrščak is a remnant of ancient fortifications surrounding Zagreb Upper Town in the Middle Ages. A visit is highly recommended because it only costs a few euros (maybe even free ... I admit not remember exactly) and with it you can enjoy one of the best views of the capital. During the visit you can also discover the gun in the tower to custom make every day at noon.

La Tour de Lotrscak est un reste des anciennes fortifications de Zagreb qui entouraient la ville haute au moyen âge. La visite est vivement conseillé car elle ne coûte que quelques euros (peut être même gratuite… j’avoue ne plus me rappeler précisément) et grâce à celle-ci on peut profiter d’un des meilleurs panoramas sur la capitale. Lors de la visite on peut également découvrir le canon de la tour qui à pour coutume de tirer tout les jours à midi pile.
