One of those placers you really shouldn't miss when in Zagreb! Some much history is contained in this area and the church roof is amazing, especially for it's age. Saturday afternoon is the best time, as that is when the "Time Machine" takes place in the summer seasons.

It's a very important historical church, built in a 13th century. It has very interesting roof with coat of arms of Zagreb on the right side, and Triune Kingdom of Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia on the left side. Southern portal is fantastic but remember-enter is from the western side of the church.

Its a part of Upper Town. In front of church around 1573 Matija Gubec, the leader of the peasant revolt, crowned with a red hot iron crown and executed.

The carved statues over the south doorway are amazing survivals from the 13th or 14th century. The brightly tiled roof with the two coats of arms is one of the landmarks of the city.

The exterior of this famed icon is stunning. We happened to be in Zagreb the day the President of Estonia was being shown the city and were miffed that he ( and his huge entourage of men in black suits and sunglasses!!!) got to see this church but we didn't. We were disappointed not to be able to see the... More
