Cathedral of the Assumption represents the most impressive Gothic church southeast of the Alps. The cathedral is the tallest building in Croatia and dominates Kaptol Square. 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.
Cathedral of the Assumption reviews
The cathedral is beautiful, no question. The Gothic spires and the castel fortresses on either side make it fit for a fairy tale. The one thing that made me glad I came to Zagreb! This is my second.... more »
Unfortunately I've been to this church after the earthquake and I couldn't see it in it's full beauty but still is a very nice church, in the center, you can see it from almost everywhere in the city.... more »
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.
Beautiful square; in front of the cathedral. Well maintained architecture. Also impressive size. If you want to get inside of the cathedral, don’t dress too revealing. On Sunday around noon, there’s a nice little show in the square (still have no clue what that is).
