This building simply imoses its presence on all those who stand before it – as it well should; it’s the tallest building in the country. The original cathedral here was built in 1093 but it was destroyed a litte of 200 years later by the Tatars. It was built up again only to be destroyed by the 1880 Zreb earthquaker one which damaged a military defensive watch-tower beyond repair. Gothic to begin with, it’s repairs progressed in Neo-Gothic style. It’s impressive (if still under renovation) spires reach 106 metres into the sky.
