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.

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.
The most beautiful thing in the most boring city of "Europe". Trust me, there's a ton of better cities to visit, don't visit this one.
