The original cathedral was destroyed in 1879 by an earthquake. The present one was rebuilt by the architect Bollet from 1880 to 1905. Beside the 3 chandeliers offered by an american from Las Vegas (the chandeliers come from a casino). everything else is from the reconstruction period.

Speechless. The Church is enormous, the architecture is just amazing. It has six chapels inside and a shrine.Definitely worth going.

If you'll ask anyone for the directions or anything that's got to do with this church, just say "the cathedral". In Zagreb, noone uses its full name (I didn't even know this is the full name until I've seen it here).

This is a very nice cathedral just up from the main square. It is beautiful inside and very peaceful to go and sit and reflect.

In spite of the constant restoration works, the cathedral is a stunning building from the outside as well as in its interior. The story of its chandeliers is quite quirky.

We attended 9am mass on 6 Nov (Sun). When we first saw the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we were awed by it. The architecture is very detailed & elaborated. Though the church is 923-years old, much have been restored for the past centuries, especially after the earthquake in 1880. The singing by the Cathedral's choir... More

A place that you must visit if you are coming to Zagreb. You will see it from different parts of the town.

The men's choir that sang at a Sunday service sounded excellent, and spread around the church were inspirational scenes from the bible and statues of saints. Passionate worshippers add to the aura of this gothic style cathedral. Highlights: behind the altar is a shrine of sorts dedicated to a deceased cardinal, and at the back of the church there's a...
