St. Peters Church

Architecture
 

The unassuming church with attractive exterior, dedicated to St. Peter, symbolically divides Vlaška street in half.

The western part of the street ends at the church’s street number, which marks the beginning of the eastern part, i.e. the neighbourhood we colloquially understand as the surroundings of Kvaternik square, an important city transportation hub. St. Peter’s parish church was built around 1770, thanks to the bishop Franjo Thauzi, at the same spot where the old parish church had been located. Today’s tower was only erected in 1856/57, according to Mihael Strohmayer’s design, while in 1930, two side chapels with semicircular apses and a new rectory were added according to Alois Bastl‘s design, as well as a new shrine.

The long construction process and diverse influences ensured the originality, as well as the stylistic and designer diversity of the complex.

 
 
 
 

RELATED

Atelier Ostrman

One of the more interesting locations in Lopašićeva Street is the art studio of the painter Tomislav Ostrman, Atelier Ostrman, where he exhibits and sells his own pieces and those of his colleagues and friends, alongside organizing small social events in this attractive workshop.

Garderoba Concept Store

With the opening of Ana Ivančić’s Garderoba, Zagreb got its first conceptual showroom for Scandinavian fashion. Garderoba is a carefully thought-out project, a room whose elements have all been designed by brilliant Croatian designers and architects, thus also adding a Croatian brand to the offer.

Slatka priča

The Slatka Priča pastry shop was started in 2013, and is currently in three places – Kranjčevićeva Street, Ivana Brlić Mažuranić Street in Zagreb’s Malešnica neighborhood, and, of course, Martićeva Street (since 2016), more precisely at the busy corner of Martićeva and Smičiklasova.

Mikrofon

Mikrofon is a music school started in 2009, located in the charming inner courtyard of 19 Martićeva Street. Its predecessor was the Vocal Studio Maraton vocal workshop from Rijeka, and the school has since then grown from offering single singing lessons to group singing and lessons for children, as well as instrumental music lessons.

Medveščak Library

The Medveščak Library, our neighborhood’s branch of Zagreb City Libraries, encompasses three departments – adult, children’s and youth (also known as “Idi pa Vidi”, or “Come and See”). Besides normal library duties, the library also engages in setting up various exhibitions in its windows, and workshops in the rooms of the youth and children’s departments.
