Landmark of Upper Town

The tiled roof to me looked Bavarian, but of course, it's Croatian. I really enjoyed this pretty church which is a popular meeting place nearby.

This is one of the things to see so you can say you've been to Zagreb (according to our local guide). The roof is beautifully tiled and the church is the center of the upper town (which is not that far upper, at least not enough to warrant a funicular).

A delightful walk up to the main square and church atop a hill in the city presents a magnificent colorful structure surrounded by the houses of the government of Croatia. Tourist and school groups frequent the area in the morning hours and no admittance to this religious site seems to be the trend. Nevertheless well worth the walk.

I love this historical building. The roff on it is something special. If you are tourist in Zagreb, you cant leave without photo of this church.

St. Mark's Church probably is the most photographed church in Croatia with its colorful roof tiles of their flag. However my interest was to see the Mestrovic sculptures inside. To quote the government guard outside in the square "You hardly can never get in there." How true. I tried to enter several times to no avail.

The first thing you notice about this church is the beautifully colored tile roof. It is estimated this church must have been built during the 13th century. The roof tiles are laid so they represent the coat of arms of Zagreb (white castle on red background) and Triune Kingdom of Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia. Time did not permit us to... More

Wander up to the Upper town and take a pic with the colourful tiled roof of St Mark's square. It's one of those iconic Zagreb pics that most tourists like to get.

Beautiful looking church sat proudly in the upper town part of Zagreb. It has a lovely tiled roof with two coats of arms on. It is sat within the cobble stone square with buildings around it. I just wish I had took a peek inside, Maybe next time!

Churches are always symbol of faith in community. When you see the national symbols on the roof, be sure local community is dedicated to the faith and to the patriotism. Great photos!
