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.

  • 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).
