This is a must see if your in Zagreb. The roof and the colours are so unique and beautiful. I have never seen any building like this before.
Unfortunately you were not able to go inside and the area was fenced off. Even though we couldn’t visit the church itself I was still very happy about seeing it from the outside.

The 13th-century St Mark’s Church is one of Zagreb’s most emblematic buildings.

Its colourful tiled roof, constructed in 1880, has the medieval coat of arms of Croatia, Dalmatia and Slavonia on the left side, and the emblem of Zagreb on the right.

The Gothic portal, composed of 15 figures in shallow niches, was sculpted in the 14th century.

The interior contains sculptures by Ivan Meštrović, though the church is open only at Mass times.

Saint Mark's Church uniquely colorful tiled roof makes it a Zagreb icon due to its signature colorful tiled roof. It is one of the oldest buildings in the city dating from the 13th century.

Unfortunately, during our visit in October 2021, there was metal barricade and we are kept on a distance.

As for the Cathedral, as of October 2022, also St. Marks Church can be viewed only from the outside, since there are renovation works going on, due to the damages the church suffered in the 2020 earthquake.
It's a small church in large square. The church was built in 1499, and it's roof is unmistakable, with colourful roof tiles depicting the coat of arms of Croatia and Zagreb.

The beautiful coloured tiles on the roof are what make this church attractive and it is well worth the look. The square was cordoned off since the church is closed for repairs after the 2020 earth quake. This is not clear in local tourist information.

St Mark's Church is in the peaceful old town of Zagreb, Croatia. The roof of the Church is beautifully designed. The colour white painted on the front of the Church, built in 1871, makes it look beautiful on a sun-shiny day.

Situated on the sloppy hill, one has to walk down the narrow road to main square and the city junction to catch bus and tramway.

St Mark's Church is visited by many tourists. Taxis are available nearby. A must visit.

This is a must see if in Zagreb. It’s in the upper part of Zagreb. The walk up there is great and the views getting there are great too. It was under construction around the building when we visited, so you couldn’t get too close to it. Loved the decorative tile roof and the symbols and what they stand for.

The church was closed off as of May 2022 when we visited. Maybe due to construction or a visiting VIP, not sure. The exterior is worth a visit on it's own and that's all we got to see. The whole area is nice for a walking trip and worth a visit.

The Church of St. Mark’s is the parish church of old Zagreb, Croatia, located in St. Mark's Square. It is one of the oldest architectural monuments in Zagreb.

On the roof, tiles are laid so that they represent the coat of arms of Zagreb (white castle on red background) and Triune Kingdom of Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia.

A church that has come to symbolise Zagreb with its decorative tiled roof. Sadly out of bounds to visitors following last year’s earthquake. Spectacular from the outside and well worth the visit. The pathway at the sides of the church are also closed off. Be sure to see the church from the south side.

Brilliant and spectacular. The must see in Zagreb.

One of the places that is highly recommended to visit while in Zagreb, I find the St Mark's church to be quite interesting but yet not worth a must-visit. It is not as grand as the Zagreb Cathedral, and is much smaller in size, though I must say that the colourful roof tiles and the architecture is quite interesting.

There are usually crowds here due to its popularity, but taking a picture here is not that difficult and the church is quite historic. One of Zagreb's top attraction, definitely, but good to have a sense of its history before visiting, or else it's just another church.

Very decorative Church to see with the way the roof is done and looks like everything just pops. We could not go inside due to the earthquake that happened and damage to the church. Being able to walk around it to get pictures from the outside was good. Hopefully in the future this will be open again to see the inside.
