The twin spires are a fixture of Zagreb's skyline. Inside the church, admire the Baroque marble altars, statues, the pulpit, large-scale stained-glass work, and other objects related to religious art. Don't miss the tomb of Cardinal Alojzije Stepinac, decorated with a relief by the famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic. See a cycle of 13th century frescoes in the sacristy. Bring your camera for photos in the soft light of the interior. Plan your Cathedral of the Assumption visit and explore what else you can see and do in Zagreb using our Zagreb route planner .

Didn't go inside unfortunately but it is pretty spectacular even from the outside. A huge cathedral that has quite a presence in the middle of the city.
