Church of St. Catherine (Croatian: Crkva sv. Katarine) is a Baroque-style church in Zagreb.HistoryBefore the St. Catherine's was built, a 14th-century Dominican church occupied the area. When the Jesuits arrived in Zagreb in the early 17th century, they thought the original church too rundown and inadequate, and worked to build a new church. Construction began in 1620 and was completed in 1632. A monastery was built adjacent to the church, but now the spot is home to the Klovićevi dvori art gallery.St. Catherine's church was victim to fire twice in history: once in 1645 and again in 1674, devastating the interior. The church was refurnished with help from wealthy Croatian nobles, and in return, they were allowed to display their family coat-of-arms or have the honour to be buried or entombed in the church.After the disestablishment of the Jesuits, St. Catherine's became part of the parish of St. Mark's in 1793. Since 1874, St. Catherine's has been a Collegiate church.OverviewThe church is designed in the Baroque architecture of the 17th century.

  • It is a church near St. Mark's Church and is pure white and pretty. It was not inside, but the nearby square overlooks Zagreb, the cathedral can be seen in front of you, and you can see the city with a brown roof. If you have time, it is recommended to stop by.

  • This church is just a short walk from St. Mark's Church to Funikura. Unfortunately, the door was closed when I visited. It seems to be able to enter only at the time of the service. By the way, if you go to the right hand side of this church building, it looks like an observatory, and it was good to see the cathedral in front of you.

  • A small church at the end of the upper town, there is good view of the lower town from the courtyard of the church. When I visited there was an orchestra group performance and it was on the Zagreb day...  more »
