Croatia: Zagreb – Zagreb Cathedral

Zagreb Cathedral in its current spectacular gothic form dates to the 12th century and another church existed here even before that. It is the tallest religious building in Croatia and in fact the tallest church southeast of the Alps – 108 m (354 ft) – in two symmetrical towers. Beautifully decorated exterior has sculptures, gargoyles, and gothic architecture; while the interior is equally impressive with tombs, massive vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows and the huge altar. The cathedral dominates Zagreb’s skyline standing high on a square in the Upper Town. One of the towers is currently under restoration having been damaged in earthquakes in the last century.
