This is a nice cathedral in Zagreb. It has a beautifully designed exterior, although the inside is basically just OK. My favourite part was the Easter egg display outside. This is close to downtown and easy to get to. Worth a visit.

The building is a nice impressive design. We especially liked the large Easter eggs outside the building. Inside also impresses, Well worth a visit.

Attend to the holy service on Sundays at 11.30. You will get a good impression of the Croatian urban Catholics. If you get the chance to listen to a concert, do not miss it.

This is known landmark of the city. Building is huge. Two towers dominate and are nearly always in reconstruction or reparation, at least part of one. Interior is less interesting than expected. Furnishing, altars, colored windows are from different periods, mainly from 19. or early 20. century. Church is full of visitors and it is hard to find some peace.

Beautiful old cathedral on the outside and the inside. It is too bad that we saw it when one of the towers was in construction.

The Cathedral has suffered mishap over the years but has been restored. Firstly it was destroyed by invaders in about the 14th century and then it was partly destroyed by an earthquake. The clock face showing the time of the earthquake is on display just outside the Cathedral. The stained glass windows are magnificent and survived the quake. A peaceful... More

Generally I'm not one for visiting churches, museums or art galleries, but I'm so glad I went inside this beautiful building. It covers all three in one. Highly recommend as it is such an interesting place and very inspiring.
