Create an itinerary including St. Mark's Church
Take in historic architecture and art at St. Mark's Church. Notice the roof tiles, which depict a white castle on a red background--the coats of arms of the city of Zagreb. Watch for the Romanesque window and Gothic doorway that remain from the original structure. At the southern portal, admire the Gothic sculptures, which represent the twelve apostles, Joseph and Mary with baby Jesus, and St. Mark with the lion. On the northwest wall of the church, you can see the oldest coat of arms of Zagreb from 1499. In the church interior, keep an eye out for two statues by Ivan Mestrovic, considered by many to be the most famous Croatian sculptor of the 20th century.

  • Nice place for photos. Relaxing and enjoyable walk through the city centre. We are here for Christmas and the city looks beautiful with all the decorations

  • This is a visually stunning building with the tiles on the roof looking amazing, a definite must visit when in town and only a short trek from the centre.

  • This is a must see. The design is amazing and is the only one of its kind. The colors from the facade are mesmerizing. Even though this cathedral is not very big, it’s greatness is unmeasurable.
  • Despite its size, no one can deny how iconic the church is. This church in the old town Zagreb shows its signature checker patterns on its roof tiles along with the crests. It’s such as shame that the church is not open for public visiting. It would be very interesting to see the interiors of the church
