One of the most emblematic places in Zagreb

You can't miss it, just be aware the church doesn't open all day, so ask for the opening hours and try to be there because also the interior is worth it to visit.

The church was easy to find. It's not so grand but it's nice. I thought the roof was really unique on how it represents the famous Croatian checkered pattern.

Very interesting church with the roof painted in a couple different versions of the Croatian flag. Some bands in the square playing traditional music on a Sunday afternoon. The church is also adjacent to the PM's office and the parliament building.

The Church of St Mark is easily recognizable by its brightly colored tile roof, bearing the coats of arms of Croatia, Dalmatia, Savonia, and Zagreb city. A series of niches in the door contain statues of the twelve apostles, along with Jesus, Mary, and St Mark. You can not miss it.

The art work on the roof was amazing and very clever. We could enter the building ,however,which was disappointing. We were wondering why there was so many official cars ,national flags and a good sprinkling of serious,uniformed men around the square.. We found out that it was Croatia's Parliament and some embassies that surrounded the square.So that was an interesting... More

Usually locked, but you can look in to admire the simplistic architecture, but it is beautiful. Roof is a work of art

Beautiful church both exterior and exterior. The church is easy to find although it takes some effort to walk the uphill street leads to the square where it's located. It's only open during mass time so be sure to visit during those hours to see the extremely beautiful interior.

Arrived in time to see the changing of the guard. Impressive! it's free and a great photo opportunity. When we went it was not so busy so if you intend to see it then it would be good to get there a few minutes before it starts. Just past 12:00

This church has its historical significance, its roof is particularly important for Croatian history. pity that the church was closed when no mass so it can not be seen from the inside

The church is located between the Croatian Parliament and the Office of the Prime Minister and that in itself speaks volumes about the historical significance
