Beautiful cathedral

Attend to the holy service on Sundays at 11.30. You will get a good impression of the Croatian urban Catholics. If you get the chance to listen to a concert, do not miss it.

This is known landmark of the city. Building is huge. Two towers dominate and are nearly always in reconstruction or reparation, at least part of one. Interior is less interesting than expected. Furnishing, altars, colored windows are from different periods, mainly from 19. or early 20. century. Church is full of visitors and it is hard to find some peace.

Beautiful old cathedral on the outside and the inside. It is too bad that we saw it when one of the towers was in construction.

The Cathedral has suffered mishap over the years but has been restored. Firstly it was destroyed by invaders in about the 14th century and then it was partly destroyed by an earthquake. The clock face showing the time of the earthquake is on display just outside the Cathedral. The stained glass windows are magnificent and survived the quake. A peaceful... More

Generally I'm not one for visiting churches, museums or art galleries, but I'm so glad I went inside this beautiful building. It covers all three in one. Highly recommend as it is such an interesting place and very inspiring.

This cathedral is Roman Catholic, and the Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary. It is the tallest building in Croatia and its two spires at 108 metres make a wonderful landmark over the city. It was severely damaged in an earthquake in 1880 and mostly rebuilt in gothic revival style. Look out for the nave's ribbed vaulted ceiling and the... More

Though the present structure dates to the great earthquake of 1880, the church existed as early as the 11th century. The stunning neo-Gothic façade includes a rose window, a heavily carved doorway, and twin spires; and the exterior is undergoing extensive restoration. They are doing a remarkable job with the stonework. Old weathered stonework is being removed and being replaced... More
