The monument is just as lovely as the cathedral. You're going to pass it multiple times on the way to many museums and attractions

This statue honours the woman who gave birth to the Lord Jesus. Nice location around the square and coupled with the good weather, it could not have been better as we came on Good Friday! For those who are dropping by Zagreb for the very first time, this place is a must!

It is recognized by it's shiny golden color I believed it should be reviewed as part of the Cathedral, there is nothing significant about this this monument except what it represent. C U Around

A huge column stands in an ample place near the cathedral and not far from food market. A sculpture of St. Mary stands on the top of a pillar. Monument is nice decoration but with average sculpture. It is well kept and freshly gilded.

Bright and beautiful, this monument stands in the square opposite the church. It actually dominates the square brining a feeling of community as the people pass.

Striking statue outside St Mary's Cathedral. It looks absolutely amazing when it is sunny. Just adds to the square outside the church.

This statue is in the middle of a fountain in the square outside of the cathedral. It is nice to spend a few moments looking at it before visiting the other sites.

The statue of holy mary sitting in front of the cathedral is unmistakable. It sits on a tall column. Painted gold it shines when the sun is out. There is a water pond / fountain at the base of the monument.

A beautiful square just outside the church. The golden statue is impressive to look at. Surrounded by restaurants and shops, a nice place to walk around.
