I read varying reports on whether or not this church was open to the public, or if you were only allowed in during mass hours. We took a chance on a random Saturday morning and found the doors wide open and tour groups streaming in and out. It's unlike anything I've ever seen. SO MUCH PINK! But beautiful. Try to... More

Every time I've been to the Church of St. Catherine, its doors have been closed tighter than a drum, so it's anyone's guess what the interior is like. However, what has been open each time is the adjacent viewing area towards the rear part of the church. From this part of Gradec, it's possible to get some quite nice views... More

This small unassuming Jesuit Church is usually closed to daily visitors, but we were lucky to be there on Sunday morning immediately after service. The interior is lovely, done in hues of pink stucco Baroque period.

I made a special trip to visit St Catherine's only to discover locked doors. Apparently, many churches in Zagreb are open only during services because, according to one guide, the city leaders do not want their churches to become tourist sites.

A most fascinating Baroque church built by the Jesuits & next to the monastery is situated in the Upper Town. We were lucky to find that the church was open as we were passing through Jezuitski Trg, The exterior is simple & quite plain but the interior has a highly decorated pink & white ceiling & walls.

The exterior of the Church of St. Catherine isn't particularly noteworthy, and it would be easy enough to pass by, especially since it seems very difficult to get inside. If you do manage that rather tricky feat, you are in for a pleasant surprise.
