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.

Like many other churches this one is closed most of the times. This time I was lucky - Sunday morning!! Beautiful pink ceiling with white stucco and all altars in side chapels in dark wood. Very different to lther churches in this respect.

This is a very beautiful church - but was only to be seen by peering through a locked glass door. One felt that it made Christianity exclusive to the few - which it is not. Good coffee at the cafe in front, and brilliant view from the back - round to the right. The wall on the adjacent building has... More

This church is a bit different from many of the other churches in Zagreb because if it's interior. It's decorated in baroque style and is definitely one of my favorite churches in town. It's located at a small square and if you go to the nearby area behind it, you will get a the best view of Zagreb.
