This year I don't have much to add, but I would like to share another photo from that trip, this one of me in front of another St. Mark's - in Zagreb.
It was the second major leg of a choir bus trip that took us from Central Slovakia through Austria and down to the Trentino region, where we gave concerts in conjunction with a local choir. We also visited tourist destinations and dined and strolled on the shore of Lake Garda. We then visited Verona and sang at the unveiling of a plaque to Slovak hero M. R. Štefánik (more on that coming up for the 100th anniversary of his death on 4 May). We visited Venice and San Marino before heading to Croatia to for another choir exchange, where I had this picture made.
This St. Mark's is probably best known for its locally produced tiles with Zagreb's coat of arms (white castle on a red background), a nineteenth-century addition to a church that dates back to the fourteenth century.
I'll be posting more about that trip in the coming months.
