Zagreb Cathedral

Zagreb Cathedral (Kaptol 31, Zagreb) – this is the most monumental and the most impressive Gothic-style sacred structure southeast of the Alps. Its ground plan, with slender cross-ribbed arches within three polygonal apses with narrow windows, resembles French architectural patterns; the details of its subsequently added naves (of equal height) correspond to the building patterns of modern German architecture; imaginative sculptures, on the other hand, reflect influence of Czech schools. All this indicates not only early introduction of the Gothic style to Croatia’s north and internationalization of art, but also the importance of Zagreb Bishopric and the status and power of its bishops in those days.  Hours:  10:00 am – 5:00 pm (Monday – Saturday), 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm (Sunday).
