Cathedral of the Assumption represents the most impressive Gothic church southeast of the Alps. The cathedral is the tallest building in Croatia and dominates Kaptol Square. The twin spires are a fixture of Zagreb's skyline. Inside the church, admire the Baroque marble altars, statues, the pulpit, large-scale stained-glass work, and other objects related to religious art. Don't miss the tomb of Cardinal Alojzije Stepinac, decorated with a relief by the famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic. See a cycle of 13th century frescoes in the sacristy. Bring your camera for photos in the soft light of the interior. Plan your Cathedral of the Assumption visit and explore what else you can see and do in Zagreb using our Zagreb route planner.

  • Unfortunately due to an earthquake in 2020 the church is under construction and was not open to the public. It looks really nice from the outside. I hope to see the inside on my next visit to Zagreb.
  • The cathedral looks amazing, but unfortunately due to the March 2020 earthquake, we couldn't enter the cathedral itself (August 2021). The damage is very visible and you can inspect the spire that fell down up close.
