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.

Zagreb Cathedral, Zagreb Reviews - Write a Review
It's a Gothic cathedral like all European Gothic cathedrals. What made it stand out to me were the gardens outside but that's not part of the cathedral. I don't think a Gothic Cathedral in Europe is capable of less than four stars unless you didn't bring the proper attire and are judging it based on its rules, which have been around for 2,000+ years. So stick a pair of jeans and a scarf in your backpack. What's the big deal? Respect. It goes a long way.
Great church, stunning architecture, but I am personally not a huge fan of dress codes for churches. I respect the religion, but come on, people should be allowed to wear shorts. Inside was a rather depressive atmosphere which might be common for Catholic churches though. Lots of large paintings and interesting monuments.
Stunning architecture, so many interesting things to see. I've noticed that many people are complaining about dress code. Sorry but every religion should be respected with all of it's rules no matter who you are or from where you are coming from.
Probably the most impressive cathedral in the country. Not as old as it looks.
Wonderful and amazing looking westeuropean cathedral! Love Zagreb/Agram !
