“A Monumental Cathedral”

Cathedral of the Assumption
Ranked #14 of 198 things to do in Zagreb
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 23, 2013

The most visible landmark of Zagreb is situated in the eastern part of the historical centre. The Cathedral is very high and really beautiful both from the outside and inside. Apart from two sky-high towers (of which one is still under reconstruction), you notice a wonderful detailed portal.
The nice interior, though it' dark, is full of various statues, paintings, and inscriptions, many of them connected to the Croatian National Revival. The importance of the Cathedral for the Croatian nation is underlined by relics of the Cardinal Aloysius Stepinac placed behind the altar.
There were many people (both tourists and natives), but the church didn't lose its spiritual atmosphere. At the time we visited it, it also served as a shelter from a heavy rain.
When you happen to be in Zagreb, take your time to see this architectural jewel!

This cathedral is different from so many of the other churches in the region. The entrance archway has the detail of some of the Norweigan cathedrals, and inside it is cool and the architecture has a touch of the Perpendicular about it. Worth a vist while you walk around the city. If you are lucky, you will get some organ or choir music as well.

This is a very beautiful Cathedral well located in the older section of town and easily gotten to by the Tram. If you wish to go to the cemetery, you can also catch bus 106 in front of the Cathedral. As must see in town.

The cathedral is imposing. A must see in Zagreb. The inside is not as decorative as most cathedrals but still quite impressive. They've been restoring one of the towers for quite some time. When I went 2 years ago it was covered in scaffolding and it still is.
