Saint Mary of the Assumption Church is located along the Roman decumanus road, close to the eastern edge of the former city walls and close to the first port on the Rječina River. The church’s interior is decorated with baroque sculptures created by Jacopo Contiero, Giovanni and Leonardo Paccassi, Pasuale Lazzarini, Antonio Michelazzi, Sebastian Petruzzi and with stucco works created by Giulio Quario. The altarpieces are mainly the works of Ljubljana painter, Valentin Metzinger and also Ivan Franjo Gladić. The gravestones exhibited around the church belong to members of the brotherhoods, patrician families and of priests who were buried in the church up until 1901.

We happened to walk in during the holy mass, so didn't want to disturb too much, but otherwise, the impression was stunning and this is very nice and special church to visit - just like all others in Rijeka.

Once, it was the main church of the city and that is the reason why locals still call it “The Big Church” (Vela Crikva) and its tower or “The Leaning Tower” (Kosi toranj) is about 40cm out of its vertical axis. Its interior hides some very nice stuccowork in baroque style.

It's the most valuable and oldest big church in Rijeka. It has beautiful decorations inside. Once, it was cathedral.
