It´s a very beautiful sculpture facing the Cathedral. It is worth seeing, be careful when you walk around, it is in the middle of the street with traffic.

I saw this statue while walking to the Lower and Upper towns of Zagreb. It is gold in color, faces the cathedral with its hands extended. Took some pictures here before entering the Cathedral.

This statue is easy to find as it is near the Cathedral. It has lovely detail and is good to photograph. Quite beautiful.

Outside the Zagreb Cathedral a fountain was built and Austrian sculptor Fernkorn was responsible for the gold-plated statues of the Virgin Mary and four angels -- the latter symbolizing the Christian virtues of Faith, Hope, Innocence and Humility. A beautiful monument, worth a stop.

It is extremely tall and has very beautiful details. St. Mary's Cathedral is also known as Cathedral of the Assumption. Must visit during the day and again at night to see the place↓and the cathedral beautifully lit up.

Visited the church and this monument is right outside. Very tall but very well done. Very close to this monument is the clock that stopped during the earthquake. Interesting area to check out if you're near.

Just outside the main cathedral. Always busy with tourists or local church worshippers. Must see if in the area.
