St. Mark's Church, Zagreb

St. Mark's Church, Zagreb (must see)

St. Mark's Church is a parish church in old Zagreb. The Romanesque window on its south facade, much as the semicircular ground-plan of St. Mary's chapel, suggest that the church must have been built as early as the 13th century. In the second half of the 14th century it was radically reconstructed and turned into a late Gothic-style church of the three-nave type. The Gothic composition of the portal consists of fifteen effigies placed in eleven shallow niches. On top are the statues of Joseph and Mary with the infant Jesus, and below them one can see St. Mark and the Lion; the Twelve Apostles are placed on both sides of the portal (four wooden statues replaced the original ones which had been destroyed). In its artistic composition and the number of statues, this portal is the richest and the most valuable Gothic portal in South Eastern Europe.

Why You Should Visit: This iconic little church is one of Zagreb's most popular and endearing symbols! The tiled roof sparkles and shines in the sunlight.
