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!

It is a lovely church in Zagreb. However, every time I've been there it was closed. So just go there to see it from outside. Maybe you are lucky and find it open!

The exterior of this building has a magnificent colored roof and is one of the highlights of the old city. We have seen many churches and apart from the exterior it is not as magnificent as many others through out Europe. Worth including on any wander through the old town

This is certainly the most colourful church I've seen in my life. The outside of the church is just fabulous; clearly a must-see in Zagreb.

unusual church in one of the oldest squares bearing the name of the church. Especially interesting colorful roof representing all Croatian regions. The only criticism is that he can not enter the church

The roof was beautiful, you should visit if you love photography and traditional architecture. One of the "musts" in Zagreb.

Impressive, on perfect position, well-known roof with croatian symbols, next to the parliament and goverment building... Not the most beautiful church in Croatia, but very popural, with big meaning in croatian history.

This is the most famous church in Zagreb, especially its beautiful roof on which depicts the entire history of the Croatian. Unfortunately the church can not be entered as a serious failure

This church refers to the center point of Croatia - not geographically but traditionally. Some important events of Croatian history took place in front of this church while its interesting roof refers to the inevitable postcards taken in Zagreb. If you forget to take photo with this roof in backgrount it would be considered as you did not come to... More

A movie was being filmed in the square outside the church and we were not able to go inside when we were there, but the roof is a beautiful site to see and a great place to take photos. We just loved wandering around that area in Zagreb.
