Create an itinerary including St. Mark's Church
Take in historic architecture and art at St. Mark's Church. Notice the roof tiles, which depict a white castle on a red background--the coats of arms of the city of Zagreb. Watch for the Romanesque window and Gothic doorway that remain from the original structure. At the southern portal, admire the Gothic sculptures, which represent the twelve apostles, Joseph and Mary with baby Jesus, and St. Mark with the lion. On the northwest wall of the church, you can see the oldest coat of arms of Zagreb from 1499. In the church interior, keep an eye out for two statues by Ivan Mestrovic, considered by many to be the most famous Croatian sculptor of the 20th century.

  • This is the landmark of Zagreb, unfortunately at this moment it has to be viewed from a distance after the terrible earthquake that happened in 2020 but still is a must see.

  • Such a gorgeous facade. The colourful tiles on the roof are unique and eye catching. Unfortunately the whole area is cordoned off as of April 2022 yet still a sight to behold.

  • The fence should be moved as soon as possible (you can't walk the square because of it)! The square itself is beautiful. St. Marko church is one of the oldest monuments in Zagreb. Most distinctive feature is the roof.
  • Despite its size, no one can deny how iconic the church is. This church in the old town Zagreb shows its signature checker patterns on its roof tiles along with the crests. It’s such as shame that the church is not open for public visiting. It would be very interesting to see the interiors of the church
