Beautiful architecture and amazing ambience. As part of a Zagreb Cultural Experience this building has to be visited. It's open to the public and photography is allowed. Bang in the centre of the city it is easily accessed

Its under construction, and its very dark inside.The staff assigned to the cathedral were unconcerned about assisting customers.

Came here on Dec-30 and was lucky enough to still seeing Christmas settings around. There's a big Christmas tree next to the magnificent golden status of Mother Mary, and a stable that resembles Bethlehem next to it. I guess there was probably some kind of performance in the evening but I didn't get to see that. Although part of the... More

Impressive but seems to have continuous renovation on towers. The place is so friendly that even usually unhappy nuns are smiling to you in the Cathedral of the Assumption in Zagreb. Go there!

In the Kaptol, very beautiful religious and cultural place. It was open most of the time during Christmas. Admission is free. Really one of the top attractions in Zagreb. A must see.

Looks magical during Christmas, and we even got to watch a nativity musical on xmas day, just outside the main cathedral. and although it was all in Croatian, we enjoyed every bit.

The cathedral is typically Gothic, as is its sacristy, which is of great... More

The Cathedral of the Assumption is beautiful from the outside and inside and most definitely worth a visit. We went late morning on a Sunday so it was heaving inside as a service was about to commence, but we still managed to take a leisurely stroll around and take in all the amazing architecture. Highly recommended!
