Gulliver Mural Zagreb – How Gulliver traveled to Zagreb

The "Gulliver Mural" in Zagreb's Opatovina park was created in November 2016. Gulliver and the Lilliputs always brighten my day...

Even though Zagreb is not Berlin when it comes to street art, it has some delightful pieces, often hidden off the main promenades. In November 2016, a new piece of street art appeared in a bit of a neglected park in the centre of Zagreb called Perivoj biskupa Stjepana ll, but known among the locals as park Opatovina. I often take my guests to this park because it's an unusually quiet oasis in the middle of the touristic and crowded area (Tkalčićeva and Opatovina) and because it offers a pretty view to upper town. And since last autumn there is an additional reason to come to this place - a lying Gulliver, tied by the Lilliputians!

The authors are the artists from the creative collective Pimp my Pump, a project most known for revamping the old 19th century water pumps around Zagreb. It took them six days to paint the mural, and they were inspired by the elongated shape of the wall. Local photographer Hrvoje Zalukar served as their model. The authors said that the mural is ''an homage to all the small and big everyday adventures, joys of life and encounters with giants, as well as with small people – the Lilliputians.“ The mural definitely brings joy to everyone who happens to pass through this park.

Kamenita Vrata – Last gates standing

"Kamenita vrata" in Zagreb, or the Stone Gates, were destroyed in 1731 -- only the picture of Saint Mary was saved. These gates are still sacred, in a way.
