St. Mark's Church (Crkva sv. Marka), Zagreb

4.5
#2 of 19 in Historic Sites in Zagreb
Take in historic architecture and art at St. Mark's Church (Crkva sv. Marka). 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.

  • Situated at the top of the Upper Town, St Mark’s Church sits proudly in the middle of a wide plaza. It has beautiful frescoes on the sloping roofs. Unique exterior. Did not get a chance to go inside.  more »
  • St. Mark’s Church is a must see when you visiting Zagreb. The roof of the church is breathtaking beautiful!  more »
  • If you came to Zagreb and saw even this church, it would have been worth the visit. Beautiful and cute design of roof tiles. It is a building which shines in the photograph.

  • I think the most colourful building in Zagreb is St. Mark's church. The drawings which look like a cat on its roof are made by a guy who has never seen a lion. Of course he wanted to draw lions but what he did looked more like cats. After him nobody intended to change then so they still remain the same. In any case this view looks good day and night
  • Even if I could not get inside, I warmly recomand to reach this place to take a look from outside: the roof is astonishing!
  • I didn’t get the chance to walk through the inside but the outside was stunning
  • This place is Zagreb to me. Walking up slowly or taking the funicular up to the upper city, you slowly see this beautiful church which is a symbol of Zagreb. The tiled roof is the most outstanding feature however the entire church is beautifully made.
  • Very beautiful church. This is the first object you have to see in Zagreb!
