Zagreb Cathedral

The Zagreb Cathedral on Kaptol is a Roman Catholic institution and the tallest building in Croatia. It is dedicated to the Assumption of Mary and to kings Saint Stephen and Saint Ladislaus . The cathedral was severely damaged in the 1880 Zagreb earthquake. The restoration of the cathedral in the Neo-Gothic style was led by Hermann Bolle. Hermann Bolle’s most famous work is this Neo-Gothic building that can accommodate more than 5,000 people. When facing the portal, the building is 46 meters wide and 108 meters high. Its spires can be seen from many locations in the city. The cathedral is depicted on the reverse of the Croatian 1000 kuna banknote.
