  • Cathedral looks breathtaking, especially when it appears from nowhere, when you are walking around the center and it's misty.  more »
  • Truely another stunning piece of architecture. Located in the old town and up a hill it is a walk for our hotel The Le Premier of 50 minutes. If in Zagreb make the effort.  more »

  • Didn't go inside unfortunately but it is pretty spectacular even from the outside. A huge cathedral that has quite a presence in the middle of the city.
  • Beautiful square; in front of the cathedral. Well maintained architecture. Also impressive size. If you want to get inside of the cathedral, don’t dress too revealing. On Sunday around noon, there’s a nice little show in the square (still have no clue what that is).
