St. Mark's Church

Local name: Crkva sv. Marka

The church Mark (Crkva sv. Marek) in Zagreb is one of the oldest buildings in the city, dates from the thirteenth century. A large Zagreb coat of arms (white castle on a red background) and the coat of arms of the Triune Kingdom of Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia were laid on its roof. The interior was decorated with the works of Ivan Meštrović (including the work "Crucifixion" in the main altar).

The roof of the temple is covered with colorful glazed tiles, it was laid in 1880. Around the gothic portal you can admire the figures depicting Maria and Józef with the Child, Saint. Mark with the lion and 12 apostles.

The church's age was determined on the basis of research during which elements of Romanesque architecture were discovered. In the fourteenth century, the temple was rebuilt in the Gothic style, the building was designed as a hall church (with many naves of equal height).
