As Zagreb’s main church and the largest in Croatia, the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and its towers, a staggering 105 meters high, are a symbol of Kaptol and the City of Zagreb.
The Zagreb Cathedral stands within a medieval fortress, complete with well-preserved towers and walls. The Zagreb Cathedral dates back to the 13th century. It was constructed in the Gothic style, and was thoroughly restored in the late 19th century, following a devastating earthquake. It was rebuilt in the Neo-Gothic style, according to the designs of the great Herman Bollé.
