The monument is a welcoming sight before the cathedral. School children were coming for a field trip as we walked to visit the cathedral. It is expertly crafted and the gold statue is stunning with the four angels at its base.

Right in front of the Zagreb Cathedral, looking over the city. A beautiful golden statue with great detail, a must see.

It´s a very beautiful sculpture facing the Cathedral. It is worth seeing, be careful when you walk around, it is in the middle of the street with traffic.

I saw this statue while walking to the Lower and Upper towns of Zagreb. It is gold in color, faces the cathedral with its hands extended. Took some pictures here before entering the Cathedral.

This statue is easy to find as it is near the Cathedral. It has lovely detail and is good to photograph. Quite beautiful.

Outside the Zagreb Cathedral a fountain was built and Austrian sculptor Fernkorn was responsible for the gold-plated statues of the Virgin Mary and four angels -- the latter symbolizing the Christian virtues of Faith, Hope, Innocence and Humility. A beautiful monument, worth a stop.
