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.
