Address: Trg Sv. Marka 5, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia

If there is one building to represent Zagreb, St. Mark’s Church will undoubtedly be the one. Why? Visitors come for two apparent reasons: The coat of arms of Croatia and Zagreb on the church’s roof, and the importance of the church in history.


St. Mark’s Church was built in the 13th century and has been the administrative centre of Zagreb since then. The City Council still holds meetings at the church. Although it was radically reconstructed and turned into Gothic style, the Romanesque window in its south facade is still well kept. On the northwest wall of the church lies the oldest coat of arms of Zagreb, which stands in nice contrast with the present one on the roof. St. Mark’s Square, which is where the church is located, is one of the most significant squares of the city, and attracts an influx of visitors every day.
