Building wasn't open, but it's the exterior roof that is of interest. The roof is steep enough that you can see it from the ground. Go early in the morning to avoid the tour group crowds. Or, on weekends go before noon to see the Kravat Cavalry perform military inspection.

A fine example of some of the ornate roof tiles used in this area but St Mark's Church has a very good and well preserved example. You can get a good view of this from the Zegreb Eye Viewpoint near the top of the Funicular.

Just stand in the square and admire the building. It is one of the most impressive sights in Croatia.

This is one of the main attractions in Zagreb and it is spectacular. It is indeed the icing on the cake and although amongst many people Zagreb is not as highly rated at other Croatian cities for me it should be high up there. Every time i am here i forgot all my troubles, it's a marvel and joy to... More

The churche´s roof is beautiful only sad that we could not see very well the interior because it was not fully opened. We just saw a bit through the glass .

St. Mark's church has one of the most unique roofs i've seen, a nice break from the traditional facades you get pretty much everywhere else. looks kind of like a lego sculpture almost :p right where the museum of broken relationships is, head there too!

Beautiful roof, it's on a lot of postcards and in a lot of books about Croatia. Wish we could have gone inside, but wasn't open at the time we were in the area.

St Mark's Church is one of the most memorable churches I have seen because of its distinctive and very attractive tiled roof containing the coats of arms of Croatia (on the left) and Zagreb (on the right). I wonder if such a structure would even be tolerated in a country like the USA where the separation of church and state... More
